You will learn the relationships between theoretical concepts and practical techniques used in assessment and support, allowing you to develop the psychological skills used by practicing Sport and Exercise Psychologists.
At Roehampton you’ll learn about the demands of working in a variety of different sports settings, how to effectively form practitioner-client relationships, the different approaches to applied practice, and you will explore the key factors that impact sports performance and well-being, including motivation, self-confidence, stress, attention, and physical activity.
Uniquely, our programme focuses on developing your identity as an academic and practitioner. Whether you want to continue your studies to a PhD or as a qualified Sport and Exercise Psychologist, employability skills are a key part of the programme. You will learn from those currently working in the industry as freelance consultants and larger organisations, as well as those working in research and academic settings.
