Course summary

This course will qualify you for employment as a Psychological Wellbeing Practitioner (PWP) within the NHS and will provide you with a masters-level qualification. It combines elements of the University's BSc Psychology and the Postgraduate Certificate in Evidence-Based Psychological Treatments run by the world-renowned Charlie Waller Institute. The degree is also an ideal stepping-stone for postgraduate studies in clinical psychology.

Career

As a graduate of this course you will be able to work as a Psychological Wellbeing Practitioner (PWP) within the NHS. PWPs work with clients who have mild to moderate depression and anxiety disorders and carry out short evidence-based interventions using a variety of techniques. The role was set up to improve access to psychological therapies.

Additionally, this MSci is accredited by the British Psychological Society (BPS) and provides you with the Graduate Basis for Chartered Membership (GBC); which is the first step to becoming a Chartered Psychologist.

This course will provide you with a range of transferable skills, including analytical qualitative abilities, writing experience, presentation skills and the ability to think and analyse scientifically.

You could go on to work for organisations such as the NHS, civil services, schools or charities. Skills learned on the course also open many doors within the private sector, in areas such as HR, recruitment, management consultancy, publicity, finance and journalism.
