Course summary

MSc Psychology programmes are designed to foster a vibrant and collaborative peer culture amongst our MSc students. Several of our modules are shared by all four of our MSc Psychology programmes whereas specialist cognitive modules will be focused on students from the Cognition & Cognitive Neuroscience programme.

Teaching and Assessment

Each module has different prescribed learning activities, including formal lectures and seminars, discussions and consultation with staff. You should expect some lively debates and interesting discussions. Please be aware that you will be expected to contribute to the programme, in the form of advance reading (of which there is a substantial amount), preparing presentations and contributing to discussions in seminars, and bringing your own ideas to bear on the teaching material.

The programme is assessed through a range of formats including:

  • Blog portfolios
  • Personal skills audits
  • Research Critiques
  • Lab Reports
  • Unseen exams and class tests
  • Verbal presentations
  • Independent research written up as a dissertation


Graduates of our programme will be well prepared for a range of careers in applied and research domains. These commonly include, but are not limited to:

  • Preparation for PhD study in cognitive psychology/neuroscience
  • Preparation for further training in clinical neuropsychology
  • Careers in industry research (e.g., user interface design, product testing, human factors)
  • Research assistant/research support careers in universities and industry
  • Data analyst / data analysis consultancy
  • Behavioural science (e.g., Government, Military)
  • Assistant Psychologist (NHS) and brain injury support worker positions

Cognitive psychologists and neuroscientists can have careers in academic, military, and industry research/consultancy work with patients suffering from cognitive limitations arising from brain injury, pursue further training in clinical psychology and neuropsychology, and work in emerging fields of behavioural and data science.
