The Course

Summary

This programme provides an excellent foundation for any student interested in a career as a psychologist with a particular focus on applying those skills to the areas of sport, exercise and health maintenance. Students on the Sport and Exercise Psychology programme will gain knowledge, understanding and skills in all the core domains of psychology (e.g., Individual Differences, Cognition, Human Development, Biopsychology and Social Psychology), whilst specialising in psychology and its application to sport and exercise contexts. Students will be taught by a highly qualified and experienced team  of academic lecturers who are at the cutting-edge of their disciplines, allowing students to discover and explore the latest developments in the field. This degree is accredited by the British Psychological Society (BPS). We pride ourselves on giving good academic and individual support to each of our students. Teaching is varied and assessment is much more than just essays and exams, involving poster presentations, journal articles and reports. Whilst this degree does not provide a professional qualification as a Sports Psychologist, it is ideal preparation for a career in Sport and Exercise Psychology, as well as many other psychology careers, for example Health, Clinical and Occupational, following further postgraduate training. Postgraduate study, and the undertaking of research opportunities, may also be followed, as well as following the teaching route.
