Course summary

Introduction

Accredited by the British Psychological Society, this highly flexible Master's provides a strong theoretical background to sports psychology in practice. You'll experience excellent peer learning alongside applied experiences, where you'll observe sport psychology in action.

Accreditations and partnerships: The British Psychological Society

The MSc Sport and Exercise Psychology is designed to provide you with an advanced understanding of sport and exercise psychology theory. You'll build knowledge of the practical use of psychology in sport and exercise contexts, and develop a critical understanding of the relationship between theory and practice.

Because all members of the teaching team combine applied work with their academic roles, you can be sure that your learning will be up-to-date and shaped by real-life experiences of psychological support.

Our many industry connections include national governing bodies, organisations, athletes and professional teams such as Bristol City Women's FC. You'll have diverse opportunities to observe how sport and exercise psychology support is delivered in practice, and how psychologists work with coaches, other athlete support staff, and policy makers.

The MSc Sport and Exercise Psychology features a balance of online and face-to-face taught content, giving you the flexibility to fit your studies around work or other commitments.

This course is accredited by the British Psychological Society (BPS) and constitutes stage 1 training in sport and exercise psychology. As a graduate, you can go on to gain chartership with the BPS by completing stage 2 training. You may also be eligible to enrol on the British Association of Sport and Exercise Sciences (BASES) programme of Supervised Experience. Both options could eventually lead to registration with the Health and Care Professionals Council (HCPC).

Whether you wish to become a chartered professional, enhance your coaching practice or work in the allied health professions, this MSc will provide you with an in-depth understanding of the application of psychology in sport and exercise contexts.

Careers / Further study

After completing this MSc, you'll need to complete Stage 2 training to become a Practitioner Sport and Exercise Psychologist. For further details of Stage 2 training, visit the Division of Sport and Exercise Psychology website.

To be eligible to progress for Stage 1 training in Sport and Exercise Psychology you must have Graduate Basis for Chartership (GBC) status.

Students with a sport and exercise science-related undergraduate degree will be eligible for the British Association of Sport and Exercise Sciences (BASES) Supervised Experience. This is a requirement for training as a BASES Accredited Sport and Exercise Scientist.
