Course summary

Overview

Our MSc and PgCert courses have a distinctive emphasis on the experiences of people who live with distress. You'll focus on the treatment of mental distress in both clinical and community settings, as well as developing an understanding of prevention and community means of social support and guidance. All students on the MSc programme can undertake a clinically relevant placement in the community or within the NHS.

Employability

We have placed employability at the heart of the psychology courses. You'll benefit from an annual psychology specific careers day, clear signposting of skills development within modules and career opportunities from the School and across the University. You could go on to work in a number of areas including clinical psychology, psychotherapy, care coordination, social work, mental health nursing and occupational therapy. The course could also help you gain senior roles and responsibilities within charities or NGOs. Please note that successful completion of the programme does not qualify you to practice as a clinical psychologist in the UK and will not allow you to register with the Health Professions Council as a 'practitioner psychologist', nor to use the protected title 'clinical psychologist'. If you wish to apply for UK Doctoral training you must still have a BPS accredited undergraduate degree in Psychology (a good upper second is often a minimum requirement). This Masters course does not substitute the BPS accreditation requirement.

Clinical placements

All students on the MSc programme have the option to complete a clinically relevant placement in the community or within the NHS. LSBU has excellent links with various mental health organisations. Previous students have had placements as support workers, recovery workers, and honorary assistant psychologists at organisations including South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust, Oxleas NHS Foundation Trust, Cyrenians (supported housing), Camden MIND (recovery and support) and Phoenix Futures (recovery from substance use). We can assist you in finding a suitable placement.

Teaching and learning

You'll benefit from small group teaching, as well as receive tutoring sessions to provide further advice and support for future employment. Learning will also be supported via e-learning sites.
