The interview will seek to establish the candidate’s ability to complete the MSc and any potential gaps in knowledge that may hinder progress. Where such gaps are identified candidates may be referred to preparatory study prior to the start of the course. All judgements are based on the expectation that the candidate will be able to benefit from and successfully complete the programme.
Sport and Exercise Psychology is a one-year full time (with part time routes available) programme of study designed for graduates seeking to develop specialist knowledge in Sport and Exercise Psychology. Within the past decade there has been a marked growth in the career opportunities available for sport and exercise psychologists (eg teaching in further and higher education, English Institute of Sport). With this growth, there has also been an increased need for appropriately qualified and accredited individuals to fill such positions.
All students are required to complete six taught modules, two in research methods and statistics and four five discipline modules and one in research methods and statistics. In addition, students will complete a research dissertation or a supervised experience portfolio.
Modules currently available are:
Enhancing Health and Well-being
Professional Practice in Sport & Exercise Psychology
Motor Control & Learning
Advanced Research Methods in Sport & Exercise
Supervised Experience Portfolio
Graduates can be found working in a range of sport and health sectors (e.g., teaching in further and higher education and English Institute of Sport, National Governing Bodies, National Health Service and local government). Within Sport (from amateur to elite), sport and exercise scientists provide support and psychological skills training to athletes to help them meet the demands of training and competition.
