The School of Sport and Exercise Science has been delivering this programme for over 20 years, yet we keep our course design current so that you can apply the most relevant theory within your practice. We have a strong ethos of theory and applied knowledge, and it is this learning practice that we instill in our postgraduates – a style of knowledge transfer that no other BPS accredited course offers.

The programme philosophy seeks to critically engage you with a broad spectrum of Sport Psychology perspectives, drawing on a range of research and applied methodologies. Founded on an academically rigorous knowledge base, studies focus on the impact that research and psychological theory has on applied practice.

Our academic team members have been selected for their specialist expertise, and you will be taught by these experts in performance enhancement. As a postgraduate you will experience a rich and highly relevant education and be able to grow as a research academic in this elite environment of thought-leaders from the field of Sport and Exercise Sciences.

Our commitment to your ability to support the performance of sportspeople remains our primary focus. You will develop consultancy skills, and the knowledge to counsel sportsmen and women. The results of your work, and the effect it will have on an athlete’s physical and conscious development, will become one of your key outcomes.
