Course summary

What makes Occupational/Business Psychology at Worcester special?

Occupational Psychology MSc and Business Psychology MSc are two contemporary and original postgraduate qualifications that apply psychology to business and organisational environments.

The MSc Occupational Psychology is an innovative qualification informed by research at the forefront of both the academic discipline and professional practice. It is open to those students who hold a psychology degree with a Graduate Basis for Chartership (GBC) and is ideal for students wanting to take post-graduate training in order to become Registered Occupational Psychologists.

The MSc Business Psychology is open to students with a non-BPS accredited psychology degree or non-psychology related degree. This offers opportunities for Business Psychologists, personnel managers, human resource managers and managers to engage with the major theories and models of business and occupational psychology taught by experts which can be implemented within their workplace.

Key features

  • MSc Occupational Psychology is accredited by the British Psychological Society
  • The MSc Business Psychology is designed to develop the key knowledge and skills required for a career in: personnel assessment, selection and training, the design of work environments, implementation of training interventions and management of careers.
  • Guest speakers from a range of organisations, such as psychometric test publishers, occupational psychology consultancies and independent consultants
  • Develop your skill and knowledge through practical consultancy-style tasks, that demonstrate the application of theory and research to practice
  • Learn about the work carried out by Occupational/Business Psychologists within organisations and about different psychological approaches to workplace issues

What will you study?

Our courses are informed by research and current developments in the discipline and feedback from students, external examiners and employers. Modules do therefore change periodically in the interests of keeping the course relevant and reflecting best practice. The most up-to-date information will be available to you once you have accepted a place and registered for the course. If there are insufficient numbers of students interested in an optional module, this might not be offered, but we will advise you as soon as possible and help you choose an alternative.

How will you be taught?

The University places emphasis on enabling students to develop the independent learning capabilities that will equip you for lifelong learning and future employment, as well as academic achievement. A mixture of independent study, teaching and academic support through the personal academic tutoring system enables you to reflect on progress and build up a profile of skills, achievements and experiences that will enable you to flourish and be successful.
