Course content

Increasingly, high-level performance relies on an understanding of the psychology of stamina and success, not only in sport but in areas as diverse as business, the performing arts, the military and emergency services.

Drawing on current research and practice, this fascinating programme introduces you to the issues that relate to both individual and group performance, then encourages you to develop techniques to minimise the influence of limitations, such as anxiety and distraction.

Striking a balance between psychological methods and the wider professional skills needed to apply them, the courses you will undertake will also give you the knowledge and tools you need to be able to critically appraise and apply scientific literature, and to plan, conduct and disseminate your own research.
