Sport Psychology

Sport psychology seeks to understand the psychological factors that affect the behaviour of individuals, teams or organisations in sport, and how lifestyle issues can influence wellbeing and performance. On this BPS-accredited Sport Psychology degree, you will study the main areas of psychology and specialise in sport aspects as you progress. To complement your psychology studies, you’ll have an introduction to physiology and you can choose modules from our Sport and Exercise Science degree. This will enhance your employability and give you an all-round understanding of the field. A key element of the sport psychology course is the hands-on experience you’ll gain throughout your studies. You’ll be offered clinical experience on campus and have access to a range of exciting opportunities, including completion of specialist short courses, professional certificates and work placements – another great boost to your CV. Sport Psychology students can work with elite athletes as part of their final year studies.
