Sport psychology is the latest scientific field to be embraced by the high-performance, professional sporting world. This programme has been designed, and is taught, by BASES-accredited sport psychologists. Consequently, it aims to provide the knowledge and practical skills that they have found essential for successful practice as a consultant, lecturer or researcher.
Specifically, the programme critically examines the philosophical and theoretical basis of assessment, support and intervention, to give an informed and holistic perspective of the profession. It is delivered in a manner that supports and stimulates students’ active engagement in their professional development and provides invaluable experience of aspects of being a sport psychologist. Masters-level programmes are yet to be considered for BASES kite-marking, however, the experiences gained through this programme will assist greatly in the completion of the BASES Supervised Experience process.
