Who is this course for?

You will be well suited to our programme if you have an undergraduate degree in psychology or a related discipline and want to advance your knowledge and gain skills that are highly valued in research and clinical professions.

We give you a strong preparation for further professional training in clinical psychology. You will also be well equipped for progression to PhD studies in fields such as cognitive neuroscience or social neuroscience, and to research positions outside academia.


You will learn from seminars, lectures, computing and statistics classes, and by undertaking an individual research project supervised by a member of staff.

Our teaching is research-led and delivered by internationally recognised experts in their field. Your learning experience will be enhanced by our invited speakers' programme of external experts working in clinical, social or cognitive neuroscience.

Optional clinical and research internships are available to you, presenting significant additional learning opportunities.
