Course content

Our Sport Psychology MRes degree course will support you in working on a self-directed programme of research with supervision from a London Met lecturer who is an expert in the field. This course places an emphasis on research methods developed in the field of sport psychology, you'll explore current debates on the nature of research and knowledge in relation to current teaching practice.

This degree will give you the opportunity to research areas such as contemporary interventions to enhance competitive performance, mindfulness, perceptions of discomfort and pain management in endurance sport, strategies to enhance exercise participation, as well as adherence and manipulation of perceived pressure to enhance performance. Your degree will usually focus on one of these areas but we welcome cross-discipline research projects.

Your supervisor will be able to advise you on career development and on relevant professional bodies to help support progression in your chosen field. You will be encouraged and supported to attend at least one relevant conference and produce at least one publishable paper.
