Course summary

About the course

A one year part-time graduate course following on from the PG Diploma in Psychodynamic Practice, providing training in advanced clinical work and research methodology in psychodynamic practice, involving the opportunity to undertake supervised original research.

The course forms part of the Oxford University Master’s Programme in Psychodynamic Studies which is currently accredited by the UPCA (Universities Psychotherapy and Counselling Association). The accreditation may be liable to change but all students should apply for student membership of UPCA on starting the course. In addition, should you progress with your studies, you can apply individually to the BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy) after completion of the PGDip (Register) and after completion of the masters (Accreditation).

The MSt course seeks to consolidate the clinical and academic work of the programme and provides training in advanced clinical work and research methodology, with the undertaking of supervised research. It is primarily orientated towards increasing the understanding and application of counselling/psychotherapy research in practice. The course is designed to bring you to an advanced level of professional competence.

Assessment

Assessment is primarily by an individually-researched dissertation and viva voce examination. The dissertation, which must not be more than 15,000 words, must be submitted in September. The subject matter, be this qualitative or quantitative, must be approved by the research tutor in consultation with the Director of Counselling Courses, and where appropriate the external examiner.

Graduate destinations

Graduates of this programme are working in various counselling settings, including schools, university, NHS and private practice.
