Course summary

The 1-year MSc (by research) degree, in Psychology, consists solely of an independent research project conducted over a 12-month period (or an equivalent period of part-time study), under the supervision of one or more members of the School’s academic staff, leading to a thesis of no more than 30,000 words.

The goal of the MSc (by research) is to provide a training programme tailored to the needs of the individual. Training can be provided from tutorials with the supervisor and other members of staff, taught courses in the School of Psychology and Neuroscience or other, related, departments, University units (such as the Centre for Academic, Professional and Organisational Development), or external organisations. Participation in conferences, seminars and workshops, both internally and externally, is also encouraged.
