Course summary

The role of a sport and exercise psychologist is vital to the world of sport and integral to population health.Sport psychologists apply psychological knowledge to improve coaching, athlete learning and elite performance. They help athletes in many ways including staying motivated, managing competition pressure and coping with injury and mental health issues. Exercise psychologists, on the other hand, work to encourage the general population to engage in regular sport and exercise. Exercise psychologists also promote the mental health benefits of exercise and its capacity to reduce depression and anxiety and improve mood and well-being.Loughborough University is famed for its contributions to sport science, coaching and elite sport, and our degree in BSc Sport and Exercise Psychology offers a unique opportunity to develop advanced knowledge and practical skills in relation to the psychological principles applied to sport and exercise – at the UK’s leading university for sport.Covering all the core areas of psychology for BPS accreditation, our BSc Sport and Exercise Psychology degree will ensure you gain an in-depth understanding of how psychological factors are used to understand and support the performance and well-being of athletes, coaches, teams and exercisers across the life span.
