MSc Sports Performance Coaching

January 2021 Induction Schedule

We have developed an induction programme to help you get started with the programme and studying at Stirling. All presentations are pre-recorded and can be watched at any time. However, you will need to have completed enrolment and module registration in order access most presentations and induction activities. These are available via the University’s online learning platform (Canvas). As part of induction, there also are opportunities to meet the staff and your fellow students, familiarise yourself with our learning environment, and begin your learning journey by engaging in a discussion with your fellow students and even practice submitting an assignment.
