Course summary

This programme will allow students to develop the knowledge and skills necessary for research and practice as a Heath Psychologist. The programme covers a wide-range of approaches, from advanced research methods, through to a working and evidence-based knowledge of theory and behaviour-change interventions. Much like our undergraduate programme, this course will adopt a personalised teaching style built on creating relationships between students and staff. All modules will be taught using the same tutorial style of teaching, in which students will be taught weekly in groups of 7 or fewer, allowing for regular quality contact time with your lecturer. It is through this method that students can achieve excellence in their qualification in a supportive environment.

Over the course of the programme, you will develop a strong knowledge base and skill-set appropriate for professional practice in Health Psychology. You’ll learn to analyse, debate, discuss and devise behaviour-change interventions for use in primary, secondary and community care. We encourage autonomy in design and analysis of research, allowing you to develop your skills towards becoming an independent researcher, with an increased awareness of the practical reality of working with short- and long-term health conditions. Chartered Health Psychologists working in practice can be found in settings such as hospitals, universities, government, local authorities, communities, schools and in private practice. They may work in conjunction with healthcare agencies such as NHS Trusts and health authorities. Alternatively you may decide to pursue a career in Health Psychology research, in which case universities and charities are the main employers.
