Course summary

Course overview:

Our MSc Psychology is designed to enable graduates from disciplines other than psychology to develop subject-specific knowledge and the practical and professional skills related to the discipline as well as further developing your general transferable cognitive, intellectual and academic skills.

This course provides you with a deep understanding of the scope of the discipline through active learning experiences to consider how psychological concepts can be applied in practice. Research training will also be provided which will allow you to undertake your own research under supervision in the field of psychology and prepare you for professional development as academic or practitioner psychologists.

How you are assessed:

Assessments are innovative and varied and the assessment strategy contains a broad range of assessments including: exams, essays and critical reviews, research proposals and reports.

Reflective practice is also encouraged to allow you to identify progress and achievements, as well as areas for future development. The sequencing and form of assessments across the modules enables you to receive feedback on key transferable skills which you can use to enhance future assessments.

Modules include formative assessments which provide feedback which you can use to develop your summative assessments. Some modules adopt a formative assessment strategy where you engage in and receive feedback on activities completed during classes each week, whilst others adopt an approach whereby you submit a piece of formative assessment closely aligned to the summative assessment and receive specific feedback on how to develop the work. Formative feedback is provided in a range of modes, including verbal, written, tutor and peer feedback.
