University of Canterbury Bachelor of Sport Coaching

The Bachelor of Sport Coaching (BSpC) is the only specialist sport coaching degree in Aotearoa. With options for flexible learning and internships, this qualification can cater for a wide variety of students.

UC students gain key skills employers are looking for, not just in sport and related fields, but in everything from communications to corporate management. BSpC students learn skills such as leadership, accountability, communication, teamwork, motivation, and psychology.

This degree also provides a recognised pathway for entry to teaching qualifications, in particular physical education and health teaching at secondary level. There is the ability to include additional teaching subjects (eg, maths or science) through the optional course spaces in the degree.
