The psychology of sport is an ever expanding area that looks to establish a way of enhancing athlete, player and other high performing groups outcomes. This is done through an evidence based approach informed by research to allow practitioners to meet those aims.
You begin the Applied Sport and Exercise Sciences (Sport Psychology) degree from University of East London by examining theory and research within sport psychology and then move onto looking at ways of applying that theory as a researcher and potential practitioner.
You finish your degree with a period in the work place assisting relevant groups with performance enhancement and researching a topic that will hopefully give you the chance to contribute to the body of literature within sport psychology to inform future practices.
Your future career
You can choose to utilise the skill set that you develop within sport psychology in a number of ways. Some students have gone on to pursue external governing body recognition as sport psychologists while others have used the skills to enhance other career options, e.g. one former British student was a tennis coach that got a position as an NCAA D1 University as Head Coach immediately on graduation.
You will develop your skills and knowledge in a directly applied context, further supported by industry experience through the placement module. This will ensure that you are 'employment ready' in your knowledge, skills and experience. The strong industry experience and contacts of our staff team also mean that you will be well-connected to potential jobs as they arise.
In addition, you will be encouraged to make full use of the range of employability resources available through the Careers Centre and LinkedIn Learning.
