“I thoroughly enjoyed studying on the Sport Psychology Certificate in IADT, taught by Dr Olivia Hurley. The course is not too research-heavy, which was exactly what I was looking for at the time. It gives a great insight into the various methods, techniques and approaches used to enhance aspects of sport performance, such as confidence and motivation. More importantly, it spurred me on to apply for the M.Sc. in Sport, Exercise and Performance Psychology at UL. Dr Hurley made the course fun and engaging, and it served more than one purpose for me as I was able to take away some of the material discussed in class and implement it into my own personal performances for my club and country”.
