Course description

Our Single Honours degree is accredited by the British Psychological Society (BPS) and upon completion of your studies you will become eligible for Graduate Basis of Chartered Membership (GBC). This will give you access to the postgraduate training courses of the BPS and will be your first major step in becoming a professional psychologist. Sport Psychology uses the rigour of science to investigate how people perceive the world, structure their thinking, solve problems and interact with others, set against the context of sport and exercise. Our Sport Psychology degree is firmly embedded in both the disciplines of Psychology and Sport & Exercise Science. This approach allows you to study important psychological theory and apply this to a variety of sport and exercise settings. You will take an interdisciplinary approach to the study of Sport Psychology, preparing for work as a practitioner in elite sport, exercise, and broader community health settings. The curriculum contains high level, research informed teaching delivered by skilled lecturers, drawing on their own research and expertise. The degree is designed to deliver a tailored skills-based experience which is underpinned by a foundation in subject knowledge and research skills and experience. You will also learn key transferable skills, enabling you to apply knowledge and undertake your own research, exploring the impact of Sport Psychology across specialist populations and in different contexts. You will be taught in our excellent research facilities, including labs for experiments in cognition and perception, an Eye tracker lab, an EEG lab, an fNIRS lab, observational and transcription labs. You are supported by your lecturers to become an independent learner capable of questioning the world around you, with an emphasis on ethical issues relating to wellbeing, competition and research.

Employment prospects for graduates of this subject

Sources: DLHE & HECSU
20 years ago, this was a specialist degree for would-be psychologists but now it is the model of a modern, flexible degree subject. One of the UK's fastest-growing subject at degree level, and the second most popular subject overall (it recently overtook business studies), one in 23 of all graduates last year had psychology degrees. As you'd expect with figures like that, jobs in psychology itself are incredibly competitive, so to stand a chance of securing one, you need to get a postgraduate qualification (probably a doctorate in most fields, especially clinical psychology) and some relevant work experience. But even though there are so many psychology graduates — far more than there are jobs in psychology, and over 13,800 in total last year — this degree has a lower unemployment rate than average because its grads are so flexible and well-regarded by business and other industries across the economy. Everywhere there are good jobs in the UK economy, you'll find psychology graduates - and it's hardly surprising as the course helps you gain a mix of good people skills and excellent number and data handling skills. A psychology degree ticks most employers' boxes — but we'd suggest you don't drop your maths modules.
