Course summary

Course description

The MSc in Clinical and Health Psychology provides a thorough grounding in the research, theory and practice of clinical and health psychology.

You will be taught about current and novel developments by leading researchers and clinicians within a highly influential research-active division of a Russell Group university.

The course has been designed to help prepare you for a career in clinical or health psychology and can be taken on a full-time or part-time basis.

You will also learn about the principles and evidence-base of psychological interventions to change behaviour and cognition at the individual, group and population level, as well as the role of psychologists within healthcare settings such as the NHS and how the science of psychology is applied in clinical practice.

In addition, you will receive advanced training in the methodology and analysis techniques used within clinical and health psychology research.

You will benefit from the expertise of clinically active members of the course team who contribute to our teaching sessions and provide research supervision. You will also have the opportunity to attend seminars and a research conference showcasing new clinical and health psychology research at Manchester.

This MSc does not replace or guarantee entry onto an accredited Clinical Psychology Doctoral training programme.

This MSc is not an accredited Stage 1 Health Psychology programme. Applicants interested in Stage 1 Health Psychology should apply for our BPS-accredited MSc Health Psychology .

Coursework and assessment

We use a range of assessment methods, including exams, essays, presentations, poster conferences, case studies, practical reports and a dissertation.

Career opportunities

This course provides an excellent foundation in clinical and health psychology research, theory and practice, which can lead on to a wide range of careers.

Many of our students have gone on to study for PhDs, or train as clinical psychologists at Manchester and elsewhere. However, you could also pursue careers within the third sector or private settings.

The strong grounding we provide in research and analytic methods is valuable if you wish to progress onto a research career or training programmes where research skills are emphasised.

The knowledge and understanding we help develop in relation to theory, evidence and practice will also help if you are considering careers in clinical and applied roles, as well as policy-making and service development.

Our unit on professional development has been designed to help further support students in pursuing their future career goals.
