You will be based in our award-winning Tom Reilly Building and have access to state-of-the-art science laboratories and equipment on this BPS accredited Applied Sports Psychology degree. Sports psychologists are increasingly in demand to help improve performance by developing key psychological and perceptual-cognitive-motor skills in a wide range of people involved in sport – from professional clubs and athletes through to schools. They can be found working with elite and Paralympic athletes and professional sports clubs, as well as in physical education or therapeutic professions. They also work with individuals with neurological impairments to help develop motor learning and control processes, plus aspects of social cognition. The basis of Applied Sport Psychology is to take the core psychological principles that underpin sport and apply them to real scenarios in professional sport, exercise, and physical activity settings plus areas such as physical education or therapeutic professions. On this course you will develop scientific research skills, theoretical knowledge, and skills in reporting empirical findings so that you will be able to carry out research projects based on real sports practice. Moreover, a key component of the programme structure is to develop applied skills that will allow you to operate effectively in the sporting context.
