MSc Sport and Exercise Psychology provide students with the opportunity to extend their theoretical and understanding of sport and exercise psychology within a supportive student-centred environment.
The course has been developed for individuals who possess Graduate Basis for Chartership (GBC) with the British Psychological Society (BPS). The University is currently seeking accreditation by the BPS and when successful, will provide the first stage in a training process towards becoming a Chartered Sport and Exercise Psychologist. The course is available in both full-time and part-time modules of study with a distance learning option also available. For students who do not have GBC the Department of Sports Studies also offers a conversion course for sport and exercise students.
This programme draws on the strengths of a research-active sport and exercise psychology team to provide students with an academic programme that supports students' career aspirations of working as a sport and exercise psychologist.
