Course summary

This route is intended for applicants who have a background or strong interest in education, have undertaken some previous study of psychology, perhaps within their first degree, and now wish to develop their knowledge in this area further.

The route offers a well-rounded programme encompassing many areas of psychology relevant to the study of human development, learning and education. A series of taught sessions and discussions support students to discover, engage with and to critically appraise key theoretical and empirical advances in the discipline of psychology as applied to education. Through these research-led teaching sessions, students have the opportunity to investigate how psychological approaches, including those drawn from developmental psychology, cognitive psychology, biological psychology, social psychology and individual differences, have been used to investigate particular aspects of education, learning and development across the lifespan.

These sessions are accompanied by the study of quantitative and other research methods in psychology. Students are also warmly encouraged to attend our Academic Group research seminars, where a variety of internationally relevant speakers join us to explore contemporary psychological explanations and research applications in a broad range of educational contexts.

At the end of the taught component of the route, students complete their own research dissertation based on topics of their choosing that align with the expertise of the psychology team.
