Applicants should hold or be working toward a 2:1 or higher undergraduate degree in Psychology, Sport Psychology or Sport Science.
The course is accredited by the British Psychological Society (BPS) as a recognised stage 1 qualification for those wishing to pursue a career as a Sport and Exercise Psychologist, whilst also fulfilling the requirements for graduates wishing to pursue professional training through the British Association of Sport and Exercise Sciences (BASES).
Only applicants who already hold, or are eligible for, Graduate Basis for Chartered Membership (GBC) of the British Psychological Society (eg: they have undertaken a BPS-accredited undergraduate degree in psychology or sport psychology), or those who plan to obtain it by completing a BPS-accredited conversion course, are eligible to register for the BPS-accredited MSc programme.
For applicants without GBC, we only admit those whose undergraduate degree has a substantial sport psychology component (eg: Sport Science) and meet eligibility for the BASES professional training pathway.
International students should check our country-specific pages for equivalents. If English is not your first language you will need to achieve an IELTS score of 6.5 overall with no less than 6.0 in any section (or equivalent).
The British Psychological Society does not accredit overseas institutions, therefore if you have an overseas degree in Psychology you will need to apply for individual Graduate Membership of the BPS. To discuss your eligibility for Graduate Membership please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
