  • Planning Training in Sport and Exercise Psychology (30 credits)

This module introduces the programme and helps you to produce a training plan in line with the competencies required by the British Psychological Society and Health and Care Professions Council. It also helps you to reflect on that plan in the form of a SWOT analysis. The module aims to:

  • provide evidence of a critical view on your own planned development
  • Sport and Exercise Psychology Professional Practice (270 credits)

This module aims to develop and demonstrate:

  • professional skills and standards (including ethics of applied practice)
  • consultancy
  • research
  • teaching and training (education and dissemination)

Learning outcomes are based on the BPS standards for doctoral programmes in Sport and Exercise Psychology (approved May 2014) and reflect contemporary learning, research and practice in Sport and Exercise Psychology. They accurately cover the four standards required of doctorate-level programmes in this area. Each standard contains core competence units in ethics, consultancy, research and communication. These are detailed in the module outline for the programme and taught, practised and assessed to demonstrate the related module learning outcomes.
