About Psychology

A distinguishing feature of our provision is the wide range of applied postgraduate programmes we offer at both Master and Doctoral levels. These include professional training programmes and specialised masters programmes that provide more advanced knowledge in new areas of the discipline. Our portfolio of programmes is taught by members of staff who are chartered psychologists and practitioners.

Entry on to our professional doctorate training programmes in Clinical, Counselling, and Educational & Child Psychology requires Graduate Basis for Chartership with the British Psychological Society. These programmes equip students with the knowledge base, practitioner training and research capabilities required to register with the Health Professions Council and to work as a practitioners in their chosen field. Competition is high for these programmes, but so is future employability. We also provide doctoral programmes for existing practitioners in Educational and Occupational Psychology, as well as an MSc Occupational Psychology and from September 2011 an MSc in Clinical and Community Psychology.

The School also accepts students whose first degree is in a discipline other than psychology. For those wanting a career change, we offer a conversion programme (MSc Psychology). Graduands from this programme can then apply for our practitioner training, or indeed take any of our other postgraduate programmes. We also offer programmes in Business, Applied and Applied Positive Psychology, the latter programme is the first of its kind in the UK. None of these programmes requires a first degree in Psychology.
