Special Features

The Sport, Health and Exercise Sciences enjoy 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.

The modules and content of our MSc Sport Sciences (Sport Psychology) course were re-designed to align with the criteria set out by the BPS’ Division of Sport and Exercise Psychology. The course capitalises on the extensive research and consultancy expertise within the sport and exercise psychology teaching team. We currently have three staff members who are BPS-Chartered Psychologists registered as consultants with the Health Professions Council and have excellent consultancy links within football and tennis. Many of our graduates have secured work-experience placements after completing their course and we are looking to further develop these opportunities. For example, recent graduates from our sport psychology courses have worked with: Fulham FC, Southampton FC, Wickham Wonderers FC, Sutton Tennis Academy, West Indies Cricket Board, IMG Bolletieri Tennis Academy.
