Program description

Sport Psychology MRes (Full-time)

Our Sport Psychology MRes degree is a one-year, 180-credit degree that gives you the opportunity to conduct your own research as well as providing you with an introduction to the practice of teaching in higher education.

You will carry out a research project in an area of sport and exercise medicine of your choosing and gain experience of teaching and learning in higher education – this includes spending 120 hours shadowing teachers and assisting them with their teaching of sport and exercise medicine modules at the University.

Our Sport Psychology MRes degree course will support you in working on a self-directed program 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.
