Sport Psychology

This course has been developed in consultation with our professional sport partners. This means your education will benefit from exceptional knowledge and standards, preparing you for your professional life after you graduate. The professional sport psychologist supports all the psychological needs of their athletes, and often across sport teams and organisations. They can work with individuals on a case-by-case basis, and support and nurture effective group dynamics to improve individual athlete, player or overall team performance. As well as supporting improvements in performance, the psychologist also specialises in helping athletes, players and teams deal with common competitive sport issues, including dealing with defeat, injury, hostile environments and group cliques. The degree is designed to provide you with the very latest scientific learning, to help prepare you to successfully pursue all of these exciting, challenging and rewarding career roles. Our graduates have moved on to fantastic careers. Currently, in elite sport science, we have graduates working for Arsenal FC and Ipswich Town FC, and elite sport science providers in the United States of America. In clinical exercise science, other graduates work for the prestigious Papworth Hospital, and Allied Health Professionals as exercise rehabilitation specialists. Some of our graduates have successful teaching careers in physical education. Your exposure to world-leading sport science facilities will ensure you and your CV are ‘career ready’
