The psychology of sport is an ever expanding area that looks to establish a way of enhancing athlete, player and other high performing groups outcomes. This is done through an evidence based approach informed by research to allow practitioners to meet those aims.
Our MSc puts you at the forefront of this process and immerses you into sport psychology in a supportive and challenging way. You begin by examining theory and research within sport psychology and then move onto looking at ways of applying that theory as a researcher and potential practitioner.
You finish your degree with a period in the work place assisting relevant groups with performance enhancement and researching a topic that will hopefully give you the chance to contribute to the body of literature within sport psychology to inform future practices.
How You'll Learn
We are investing in key areas beyond your studies including our career services, library and well-being, to be available both face-to-face on campus and online with many of these available 24/7. We have new, modern library facilities on both campuses offering inspirational environments for study and research. Libraries contain resources in print and digital formats, a range of study spaces and dedicated librarian who can assist with your learning. Students are supported with any academic or subject related queries by an Academic Advisor, module leaders.
If you need a bit of extra help with certain skills such as academic writing, maths or IT, our Skillzone and English for Academic Purposes we offer workshops, drop-in sessions and one-to-one appointments to help our students achieve their potential. You can receive advice and guidance on all aspects of the IT systems provided by the university from our IT Service Desks located on all three campuses.
Our Student Support hubs in Docklands and Stratford feature centralised helpdesks to cater for your every need. UEL provides also support and advice for disabled students and those with specific learning difficulties (SPDs).
Your Future Career
You can choose to utilise the skill set that you develop within sport psychology in a number of ways. Some students have gone on to pursue external governing body recognition as sport psychologists while others have used the skills to enhance other career options, e.g. one former British student was a tennis coach that got a position as an NCAA D1 University as Head Coach immediately on graduation.
You will develop your skills and knowledge in a directly applied context, further supported by industry experience through the placement module. This will ensure that you are 'employment ready' in your knowledge, skills and experience. The strong industry experience and contacts of our staff team also mean that you will be well-connected to potential jobs as they arise.
In addition, you will be encouraged to make full use of the range of employability resources available through the Careers Centre and LinkedIn Learning.
Students should have minimum 2:1 degree (or equivalent for international students) in a sport or psychology related area. Related include but are not limited to, sociology, anthropology, social sciences, career coaching. Candidates with exceptional and extensive work experience in sport or psychology may also be considered (subject to the approval of the programme leader). We would normally expect you to have Grade C in GCSE English and Maths.
