Department of Sport




As part of our vision for sport, University of Nottingham is committed to providing an environment for students to thrive and achieve on and off the field. We aim to create an environment which enables students to harness their motivation and build their confidence.

Sport psychology’s predominant aim is to help athletes prepare psychologically for the demands of competition and training. At University of Nottingham Sport we have a dedicated sport psychologist on hand to support both student-athletes individually and our performance teams. Services include:

  • 1-2-1 support 
  • Group / Team workshops to provide support

Our practioners work hand-in-hand with our performance lifestyle and coaching team to identify where sport psychology support services may be beneficial, with student-athlete wellbeing our primary consideration.

Sport psychology is a key component of our Performance Sport programme. We embrace it to enable our students to fully enjoy their sport and unlock their potential for success.
