Course summary

Research profile

This programme offers students the opportunity to focus in detail on a chosen area of the subject, while still being able to take some taught courses. It is intended for those who already have a good background in psychology, typically from undergraduate study.

The main part of the programme will involve writing a dissertation, and it is recommended that candidates should have an idea of their chosen topic or area before applying. Students are given support in developing this topic during the year by an appointed supervisor and by dedicated training in research methodology.

Students are advised to take two taught courses (further courses may also be attended, but not for credit), which are offered from the wide range of subjects taught at Masters level within Psychology.

Teaching will typically be in small groups, and supervision is organised on the basis of one-to-one contact with one or a small number of expert supervisors.
