You'll need to complete:
- a degree in psychology accredited by The British Psychological Society (BPS)
- a BPS accredited master's degree in sport and exercise psychology
- 2 years' structured supervised practice
You may be able to study for an approved postgraduate conversion course, if you're a graduate in a subject other than psychology or your psychology degree is not accredited by the BPS.
Competition for postgraduate training is strong. You'll need an upper second class degree or higher, and evidence of excellent research skills to apply. You'll also need relevant work experience.
You'll usually need:
- 5 GCSEs at grade 4 (C) or above, including English, maths and sometimes a science
- 3 A levels or equivalent
