Course summary

The MPsych Advanced Psychology is a four-year integrated masters programme, providing a fast-track for ambitious students to get advanced training to begin their academic or professional career.Hands-on learning is at core of this newly designed course. We embedded practical activities into all elements of your learning, so you can put new knowledge into practice and build the practical skills a modern psychologist needs. In our new Psychology Experiential Learning lab – Psyc:EL – you’ll explore the breadth of psychology at first hand. Working alongside fellow students you will experience psychological phenomena, design experiments and collect data to test theories, and learn to use psychological tools and equipment. Working through a series short projects designed to tackle specific problems you’ll get the rapid feedback you need to hone your skills and knowledge so you can achieve your best potential. Case studies, data visualisation, and interview techniques show how our knowledge of psychology connects and informs other disciplines, and give you the confidence and experience to step into a career of your choice. As you progress through your studies, you’ll be able to explore the areas of psychology that interest and benefit you the most. You have the chance to spend a year studying at a partner university abroad, or working on a professional placement to apply your new knowledge and experience in a variety of real-world contexts. By your third year, you’ll have complete freedom of choice across over 20 topic choices, each taught by a world expert in their field, and will be working on a research project of your own choosing. These options and opportunities allow you to shape the psychologist that you want to become.On completing the third year you can either graduate with the (BPS accredited) BSc in Psychology, or continue-on for specialist training in the science and practice of psychology. Your final, masters-level, year balances advanced methods for psychological research with extensive taught content in three primary ares: cognitive and brain science, motivation and behaviour change, or clinical psychology. Core modules extend and secure understanding of the theory, application, and challenges of applying psychological methods to real-world data. Quantitative and qualitative or interpretative methods both given extensive coverage, with cross-cutting modules designed to integrate multiple research and professional perspectives. These advanced masters-level studies are designed to provide a greater depth of experience to that offered in a standard three-year degree, providing you with an advantage in knowledge, skills and experience that can put you on the ladder to your chosen career in professional or research psychology.
