This programme is relevant for students who hold British Psychological Society (BPS) Graduate Basis for Certified Membership (GBC) and are looking to complete a BPS accredited Master's degree in sport psychology. This stage 1 qualification is required for progression onto stage 2 of BPS professional training, which is the route to Health Professional Council (HPC) Registered Sport Psychologist status. Studies focus on the impact that research and psychological theory has on applied practice.
MSc: Entry requirements (Home) If you are applying for the BPS accredited award you must have Graduate Basis for Certified Membership (GBC) on entry and would normally be expected to have a good honours degree (i.e., upper second or first) in Sport Psychology, Psychology or a related combined award. Applications from students with alternative qualifications: You are not eligible for the BPS accredited Stage 1 award, so cannot complete BPS Stage 2 training to become a HCPC Registered Sport Psychologist or have access to Chartered Membership of the Society. Applicants for the non-BPS accredited MSc Sport Psychology award would normally be expected to have the same level of honours degree in a related discipline e.g. Sport Science, where significant evidence of Sport Psychology study can be demonstrated. In addition, international students should hold IELTS English language at a minimum of 6.5 or equivalent.
