Abstract The MSc Psychology of Sport at the University of Stirling adopts a ‘teaching hospital' model to help ensure students learn to work at and beyond Master's level. Drawing upon the unique integrated approach of the School of Sport and the Sports Development Service, students engage in postgraduate-level professional practice and development opportunities in relevant work environments. Our teaching hospital model is underpinned by a philosophy that students need to learn their skills in an environment where they can both achieve and reflect upon mistakes alongside more experienced practitioners.
