Course summary

Overview

Accredited by British Psychological Society (BPS) for the 2020/21 intake, this course is designed to help you become a practising health psychologist. Upon successful completion of the course you will have completed stage one training - the first step towards Chartered Membership with the BPS and registration as a health psychologist with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) (registration fees payable to the HCPC and BPS apply). Successful completion of the course will enable you to use your knowledge and skills to deploy psychological techniques to a range of healthcare scenarios to promote physical health and general wellbeing, and to improve patient outcomes.

Course information

The MSc Health Psychology at Coventry University builds on your undergraduate knowledge and skills to provide an in-depth understanding of health psychology. Used in a range of applied settings, health psychology helps promote healthier lifestyles (e.g. supporting people to lose weight or stop smoking), helps people to live well with long term conditions (e.g. self-manage their diabetes appropriately) and to improve the healthcare system (e.g. advise doctors about better ways to communicate with patients).

Career prospects

Knowledge and skills developed on successful completion of the course can be applied in many different settings including hospitals, local authorities, universities, schools, charities, social enterprises and organisations.
