This course is for those aiming to develop careers in research or enter subsequent training for a scientist-practitioner oriented career such as clinical or educational psychology. It is also designed to provide a basis for further postgraduate study (eg PhDs) and applications for research assistant posts. You'll learn the skills and theory for conducting research. You'll have the opportunity to meet and discuss research with postgraduate students in the School of Psychological Sciences and Health. You'll also play a role in research with members of our academic staff. You may also have the opportunity to be employed within the School of Psychological Sciences and Health as a Graduate Teaching Assistant.

Careers

The course is primarily designed for graduates in psychology who wish to begin a career in research. It's ideally suited to someone who wishes to apply for a post as a research assistant or wishes to apply for doctoral study.

Previous students have been successful in receiving PhD funding from the University, as well as externally funded studentships from a variety of sources including the Economic and Social Research Council, the Welcome Trust, the Carnegie Trust, and places at other universities.

The course also provides research training to graduates who may wish to enter professional training for jobs which have a ‘scientist-practitioner’ underpinning such as clinical psychology.
