Course summary

This programme is aimed at those who wish to develop careers in psychological therapy or mental health by building on your knowledge, practical skills, experience and confidence when applying for highly competitive roles such as Assistant Psychologist or Clinical Psychology Research Assistant. This programme will provide you with the academic, practical and research skills you need to continue onto further professional training in clinical psychology, counselling psychology, psychotherapy, clinical research, and health management.
You will be introduced to a range of approaches to psychological therapy and intervention and will be supported to develop a range of therapeutic communication and intervention skills both in workshops and through work experience. As part of the Masters programme, you will also acquire the knowledge and skills required to critically assess research in therapeutic psychology and to undertake research in a topic that is relevant to psychological therapies or interventions. You will be taught by staff who are therapy practitioners and researchers in mental health, psychological wellbeing and trauma.

During the course, you will focus on developing in-depth knowledge, understanding, skills and experience for progressing to, or within, therapy related careers, including clinical psychology, counselling psychology, psychotherapy, clinical research, and health management. Upon graduation, you could go on to work in the areas of mental health, psychological and social wellbeing, overseas development work, and clinical research. You could also pursue a career in clinical psychology such as psychotherapy and counselling trainings. Or you could choose to continue your academic studies and undertake a PhD in psychology. We also aim to attract professionals working with deprived client groups; in the field of interventions, treatments and social policy, and this qualification will enhance their career path. Students can also exit with PGDip awards.
