The MSc Sport and Exercise Psychology is intended for students who have completed a British Psychological Society (BPS) accredited undergraduate degree in psychology and who wish to specialise in sport and exercise psychology, either as researchers or practitioners. This course accreditated by the BPS so constitutes Stage 1 of training towards accreditation as a Sport and Exercise Psychologist (registered with the Health Professions Council).
School of Sport and Education
The School enjoys a prominent position within the University, building upon traditions that stem from Borough Road College - the oldest teacher-training college in the British Commonwealth. We have a long-standing reputation for excellence in teaching and an impressive record of research and publication which consistently attracts high-calibre students, including high level sportsmen and sportswomen who successfully combine study with training and competition.
Our students have varied backgrounds and interests - some are keen to gain knowledge about sports performance, others are keen to explore the links between sport and, for example, community, education, health, and politics. Sport is a hugely popular form of culture around the world and the academic study of sport has grown in popularity to meet the demands of the global sports industry. In parallel with these developments, sport sciences courses at Brunel are up-to-date, dynamic, and forward-looking. If you are interested in studying sport or forging a sport-related career, we welcome your application to study for a postgraduate degree at Brunel.
Subject to formal approval, modules will include:
* Research and Application in the Psychology of Sports Performance
* Social Processes in Sport and Exercise
* Individual Differences in Sport & Exercise
* Psychological Skills for Practitioners
* Professional Development or Performance Lifestyle
* Research Methods and Data Analysis
* Research Dissertation
The new MSc Sport & Exercise Psychology will run in parallel with the existing MSc Sport Sciences (Sport Psychology) programme. Graduates of both programmes will be eligible for seeking accreditation through the British Association of Sport and Exercise Sciences (BASES).
* BPS Division of Sport and Exercise Psychology
* BPS accredited psychology courses
The normal entry requirement is an upper second class honours degree (2:1) in a British Psychological Society (BPS) accredited Psychology course that confers Graduate Basis for Registration (GBR). Students who hold a good honours degree in a related discipline and who have successfully completed a BPS accredited conversion course (e.g. Graduate Diploma in Psychology) will also be considered. Where appropriate, an interview will take place.
