This article forms part of the The Stillness Huddle — a space for sport psychology and mental training resources and tools for athletes, coaches, sport science professionals, parents, and students. 

The thought of pursuing higher education brings along a range of emotions, important recommendations to remember, and plenty of questions. It feels like you are standing in the centre of intersecting roads and the main question that arises is ‘where now?’

If sport and exercise psychology has crossed your mind, you must have pondered over how and what to study. ‘What should I exactly study?’ ‘Which are some universities that offer degree programs and where can I find them?’ ‘Are there any certifications I need to obtain after my master’s degree to start practice?’

The world has endless possibilities, so deciding on your future feels equally exciting and daunting. Combining psychology with sport is a fascinating idea! It will take you down a journey filled with learning, challenges, joy, and satisfaction.

After more than a year since I first created and shared this education guide which received a great response, I have updated the resource to include more value.

  • Degree programs offered at universities across the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, Germany, and India
