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 on Stage 2 of the BPS Qualification in Sport and Exercise Psychology (QSEP)
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 or first class degree, and evidence of excellent research skills to apply. You'll also need relevant work experience.
You'll usually need:
- 3 A levels or equivalent
- a degree in any subject for a postgraduate course
