How do I book onto a course?
Please take a look at all our course information above, when you’re ready to book follow the links to the online store. Here you can book your place and pay for your course.
Please take time to read the course descriptions carefully as candidates must ensure that they meet all the course pre-requisite criteria before applying for a course.
If you provide false information or do not meet the course pre-requisites you will be asked to leave the course.
Is there a closing date for each course?
Courses will be available to book up until a week prior to the course start date, this is to allow for candidate documents to be created. As there are limited candidate places available, a course will be taken offline once it is full.
What do I do if I want to book more than one course?
If you wish to book on to more than one course please logout and log back in again between purchases. If you wish to book a large quantity of course spaces, please contact a member of the Coach Education team by emailing email@example.com.
Can I book two bundles at once?
- Only one bundle can be purchased per transaction
- When purchasing a bundle the candidate is committing to both courses, it is their responsibility to ensure they have checked they can attend all dates
- The same candidate must attend both courses, they cannot be shared
- Staff and student discount does not apply to bundles
Can I get student/staff discount?
Staff and students of the University of Leeds are entitled to a 10% discount on all coach education courses apart from the Diploma in Sports Massage course.
To get this discount book onto the course of your choice and then contact Rachel (Coach Education Co-ordinator) via email on firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange a time to meet her in The Edge Sports Development Office.
Rachel will just need to see your staff or student card to prove you are a member of the University of Leeds and will process a refund of your 10% discount.
- Please note that the 10% discount does not apply to bundle packages.
- Discounts are also not applicable on the Diploma in Sports Massage course.
What do I do if I have paid but can no longer attend the course?
When booking a course the named candidate is making a commitment to attend all dates in that programme. If, after payment, a candidate cannot attend for any reason including illness or injury, the candidate will not be entitled to a refund unless a doctor’s note is provided. Each candidate’s course fee is committed to hire of facilities, course tutors, course material and administration cost which are not recoupable from the service providers.
If you are unable to attend, to avoid loss of payment, you can find another candidate to take your place. If a replacement is found, you are to notify the Coach Education team (email@example.com) 7 days before the course start date. A £5 administration fee is charged for changing the name of the candidate on the course register.
What happens if there are insufficient numbers on a course?
The Coach Education team will do everything they can to ensure a course runs, however, should the need for cancellation arise, you will be informed 4 days prior to the course start date. If the same course is due to run at a later date, you can either transfer to that course or receive a full refund.
When will I receive my course certification?
On successful completion of the course, and once an address has been provided, certification will be posted out in the weeks prior to the course end date. Some courses require the completion of voluntary hours before the qualification can be awarded so please refer to the ‘course information’ section to determine whether this applies.
PLEASE NOTE: A permanent home address is required before the University of Leeds will send out certificates; term time addresses will not be accepted.
Where can I park if I am driving to the course?
