Teaching and learning

Teaching is organised on a module-credit basis, with each module requiring approximately 36 hours of staff contact time and 200 hours of total student input in each 12-week semester.

The main theme of the teaching and learning aspect of this MSc is to encourage you to develop the necessary skills to understand and communicate advanced theoretical and research-based knowledge of nutrition to people who participate in sport and exercise. Learning methods reflect the wide variety of topics associated with applied sport and exercise nutrition and include lectures, directed reading, workshops, seminars, practical exercises, laboratory sessions and project work. The research project will be supervised on a one-to-one basis.

Student performance in each module is usually assessed by evaluation of the quality of written or design work, and verbal presentations. Assessment methods may include essays, seminar papers, formal written examinations, in-class tests, project case work, design and verbal presentations, workshops, simulations, and practical exercises.

Specialist facilities

Field trips

We encourage students to attend relevant industry and academic conferences to further their subject knowledge and take advantage of networking opportunities. When possible, we provide finanical support for students to attend conferences (subject to availability).

Careers

Many sports are becoming increasingly professional in their approach to training and nutrition. For example, many sports clubs now employ full-time nutrition consultants. Career prospects outside sport are perhaps even more exciting. The NHS offers an increasing number of opportunities for students with specialist training in exercise nutrition to support GP referral schemes and other healthy living programmes. The growing awareness of health within society, coupled with misunderstandings about the relationships between physical activity, nutrition and health has led to an increasing demand for graduates who can deliver evidence-based solutions and advice at all levels. Research or teaching within further or higher education also provide potential career opportunities.

Graduates progress to a diverse range of careers including exercise and lifestyle consultants based within hospitals and private practice. Various graduates have secured full time and part time work with professional sports teams as well as the Institutes of Sport in the UK. Graduates also progress to work in major international companies such as GlaxoSmithKline or are employed as industry consultants, dieticians and nutrition counsellors. Graduates have also successfully gained funded PhD positions.

Key fact

Accredited by the British Psychological Society, highly flexible, and geared to excellent peer learning with practical experience and placement opportunities, this Master’s provides a strong theoretical background to sports psychology in practice.

Introduction

Sport and Exercise Psychology is a relatively new field of applied psychology that's growing rapidly thanks to an increasing global focus on elite performance and physical activity in general particularly in light of the London 2012 Olympic Games. Today, the psychologist's contribution to our understanding and enhancement of sport and exercise is ever more varied and important.

Supporting athletes and wider society

National governing bodies now recognise sports science as an important part of training and competition for high-performance sports. These days many teams, sports organisations and local health authorities employ sports and exercise psychologists to help train athletes and promote physical activity to the wider population. Meanwhile, many primary care trusts are now appointing exercise specialists with psychology expertise to work in areas such as chronic conditions and health promotion.

The MSc in Sport and Exercise Psychology gives you a critical understanding of contemporary issues in sport and exercise psychology, and applies this directly to practice and future roles in sport and exercise psychology. The course team brings extensive experience of counselling, motivational interviewing and other applied skills, along with the psychological tools you'll use when working with athletes, teams and other groups. Working with teams and individual athletes features heavily in the course.

Therapeutic processes form a central theme in this course, and as a result you'll develop a solid foundation in the therapeutic skills required to work effectively with individuals in sport or exercise contexts.

For up to date list of modules and course delivery please visit our website.

Learning and Teaching

Sport and Exercise Psychology is a relatively new field of applied psychology that's growing rapidly thanks to an increasing global focus on elite performance and physical activity in general particularly in light of the London 2012 Olympic Games. Today, the psychologist's contribution to our understanding and enhancement of sport and exercise is ever more varied and important.

National governing bodies now recognise sports science as an important part of training and competition for high-performance sports. These days many teams, sports organisations and local health authorities employ sports and exercise psychologists to help train athletes and promote physical activity to the wider population. Meanwhile, many primary care trusts are now appointing exercise specialists with psychology expertise to work in areas such as chronic conditions and health promotion.
