Description

The mind plays a huge role in sports and exercise performance, by helping – or preventing – people from achieving their physical and technical potential. If you’re a sports or psychology graduate or current practitioner who wants to advance your sports science career, our MSc Sport and Exercise Psychology degree course is for you.

On this course, you’ll learn about the effect of the mind on human behaviour and performance, in and out of competition. You’ll develop knowledge and skills that are critical to practitioners, and study the key themes including the psychology of elite performance, applied sport psychology and the psychology of exercise and physical activity.

We’ll provide the expertise and support so you can develop your professional practice. When you graduate, you’ll be prepared for a career in sports psychology with professional sports clubs, national sports organisations and private clinics.
