Course summary

Overview

This course develops advanced research skills that will be valuable whether you aspire to be a chartered psychologist or intend to work in any sector that puts a premium on evidence-based decision-making, including health, human resources and general management.

For those who would like to progress towards becoming a chartered psychologist, this course provides a rigorous preparation for the additional postgraduate research and professional training that are necessary for chartered status.

Course structure

We use a wide variety of teaching and learning methods which include lectures, seminars, workshops and one-to-one research supervisions. Compared to an undergraduate course, you will find that this Masters requires a higher level of independent working.

Your modules will be assessed through a variety of assessments which include problem-based research scenarios, individual and group presentations, data exercises, written project reports, project logs and reflective commentaries.

Career options

At the end of this course you will be able to make a strong application for doctoral programmes that lead to chartered status as a psychologist. There are nine types of psychology in which it is possible to become chartered: clinical, educational, forensic, occupational, counselling, sport and exercise and health psychology, as well as neuropsychology and teaching/researching in psychology.
