Course summary

Course overview

The Psychology MRes allows you to specialise in a specific psychological topic, in your extended independent research project, while also gaining broad-based research training. You will work as part of a team in an established area of nationally and internationally recognised research excellence.

In addition to gaining an advanced level qualification, the course provides opportunities to develop valuable transferable skills. Skills you will acquire include data collection and analysis, research design, decision making, critical thinking, independent learning and presentation skills.

It's important that you contact a member of the psychology team to discuss your research proposal prior to submitting your application. You will be required to submit an outline research proposal, in line with an advertised project area, in order to be accepted on the course. This will be assessed by a thesis supervisor.

The MRes provides excellent research training through a two-semester psychological research methods programme which is designed to meet the ESRC Postgraduate Training & Development Guidelines (2nd edition, 2015).
