Sport and Exercise psychology is an exciting new discipline with growing opportunities for qualified professionals.

To become a Sport and Exercise Psychologist, you must have the Graduate Basis for Chartered Membership from the British Psychological Society and fulfil a number of requirements.
•Stage 1 training involves the satisfactory completion of an accredited Masters programme (we also offer this Masters at LJMU)
•Stage 2 training includes two or more years spent acquiring a range of supervised skills connected with professional skills, interventions, consultancy, research, teaching and training (as facilitated through this course)

The programme is underpinned by a strong focus on equipping future Sport and Exercise psychologists for a range of professional scenarios.

The programme can be studied full or part time. Full time students must be enrolled for a minimum of two years to meet statutory training requirements. For part time students this is adjusted pro rata.

In keeping with the nationally agreed curriculum competences for Sport and Exercise psychologists, you will be developing your skills in teaching and training (education and dissemination), research, consultancy and demonstrating that you have the generic professional skills needed to qualify as a Sport and Exercise Psychologist. This is achieved through your own work-based learning experiences, taught sessions on the programme and extensive supervision.
