The University provides many opportunities for students to gain coaching qualifications during their time at St Andrews, running subsidised courses each year.
Coaching and Coach Education
Our coach education programme allows students to develop their coaching and teaching skills in various training environments throughout the year.
- Through the Scottish Football Association we are able to run Level 1, 2 and 3 coaching courses in St Andrews aimed at candidates from our student body and local prospective coaches.
- We encourage students to take the next level when appropriate and can offer considerable subsidies towards course fees.
- Once qualified, students can gain experience and develop their skills by coaching in local community projects.
- Our volunteer coaches also have the opportunity to travel to Africa each summer as part of the University’s Volunteer Zambia and Volunteer South Africa programmes.
