Course summary

About the course

This course is for students who want to study how psychology helps us understand health-related behaviours, and how it can have a positive impact on wellbeing.

It forms stage one of the training you need to become a charted psychologist member of the Division of Health Psychology within the BPS.

Why choose this course?

  • Study important topics facing society such as obesity, lifestyle and stress, and examine them from the viewpoint of staff currently researching these topics
  • Explore the explicit links between scientific theory and practice by showing how a critical understanding of theory may guide the collection and interpretation of empirical data within a given context
  • Develop a systematic understanding of knowledge and a critical awareness of current problems, and acquire new insights into the theory and practice of health psychology
  • Gain a high level of knowledge of qualitative and quantitative research methods that will allow you to perform complex data analysis, interpretation, evaluation and synthesis, and develop your competence in a range of techniques including multivariate analyses
  • Benefit from the development of a strong sense of personal responsibility and professionalism that will enable you to practise or conduct research within ethical guidelines.

How will I be assessed?

The primary focus is to ensure build upon the core skills developed through successful achievement of the completed Graduate Basis for Chartered Status (via an approved undergraduate degree or conversion postgraduate course) and to move towards the competences required of a Health Psychologist as outlined in the Subject Benchmark statement for Psychology (QAA, 2016) and aims and objectives of a Stage 1 Qualification in Health Psychology as set out by the British Psychological Society (2017).
