Course summary

Course Overview

The Foundation Year will allow you to develop your academic study skills and build confidence in your abilities, identifying your own strengths and development needs for progression onto an undergraduate degree.

Do you have a passion for sport and exercise? Do you want to find out what psychological aspects support sporting achievement? With Sports Psychology, you’ll be well versed in the techniques and skills required to understand how sports people can achieve their full potential. You’ll acquire the knowledge and skills, which will allow you to not only understand the unique psychological issues influencing an athlete’s preparation and performance, but also how to effectively design a programme of psychological support based on cutting edge research and the learning gained through this qualification.

Learn key skills

Through course assessments you'll gain key skills such as teamwork, programme design, critical analysis and synthesis skills, as well as how to give engaging presentations, write concise reports, and analyse data effectively.

Be a part of the British Psychological Society

This course has been accredited by the British Psychological Society (BPS), a qualification recognised by major employers throughout the country. All our compulsory modules take you through the core BPS requirements. Once you graduate, with a 2.2 or above, you’ll be eligible for the Graduate Basis for Chartered Membership (GBC). From there, you’ll be able to take the next steps towards being a Chartered Psychologist.
