Course summary

Warwick's Psychology Department offers you the opportunity to gain practical experience in research through placements across different laboratories working on thematically related research. Psychological Research MSc also allows you independence to explore your own research topics.

Course Overview

Specifically designed for students who wish to pursue an academic research career, the course offers first-hand research experience through placements in different laboratories, working on thematically related research. This lab rotation offers strong candidates for doctoral research more scope to explore different topics within their areas of interest than the traditional options at Master’s level. Two placements taken during the course allow you to contribute directly to your chosen supervisors’ research. A subsequent research project then gives you the chance to put this experience into practice in developing your own area of study, supported through the advice of relevant academics. Possible themes include: Sensorimotor Control; Cognition and Emotion; Development of Language and Communication; Psychology and Policing; Driving; Sleep. Alternatively, you can plan your own pathway based on our research expertise.
