This postgraduate distance learning degree will equip you with an excellent level of knowledge and understanding of a broad range of topics in Occupational Psychology, including an appreciation of theory, an awareness of the strengths and limitations of research evidence, and how research can be used to help organisations and its employees.

You will learn how to apply occupational psychology methodologies to solve real-life problems in organisations. Core psychological theories will be illustrated with the latest research and examples of practice.

The course uses an online teaching and learning system to create an interactive learning environment. Your learning materials are accessed completely online at any time of the day. Distance learning with the School of Psychology means studying in your own time on a part-time basis, so you can combine achieving a qualification with work or family commitments. You will benefit from our professionally created course syllabus that meets the needs of professionals working in the field.

An optional three-day residential Course Conference is held in April at the University, consisting of workshops and study skills sessions. The Conference provides support for your studies and the opportunity to hear esteemed speakers, both academic and practitioner, on areas of occupational psychology. It is also an excellent opportunity to meet staff and fellow students.

As part of the course you can also sign up for optional psychometric test training courses. (There is an additional cost for these.)

If you have any questions about this course, join us for a live online chat with academic tutors and admissions staff.

The Master of Public Health (MPH) is a specialised Master’s Degree in that it has academic and professional elements, taking an interdisciplinary approach to areas related to public health. Students are taught how to monitor, diagnose and regulate the health concerns of communities through public policies’.

Public Health is an interdisciplinary area which aims to prevent disease, prolong life and promote health. It addresses broad issues that can affect the health and well-being of individuals, families, communities, populations, and societies. This masters level programme is aimed at graduates and professionals from a range of backgrounds and will develop your knowledge, skills and capabilities in key areas such as health surveillance, intervention, leadership and policy development.

The programme is both for students who want to enter the field of public health and for those already working as a health professional who want to progress their career. There will be opportunities to engage with employers and real-world projects and for those already in employment there will be opportunities to network and develop their understanding and competences.

The intention is to run the full-time programme on 3 days of the week and part-time route on one day a week. We are seeking accrediation from APHEA and for CPD accrediated modules from the government's Faculty of Public Health. This is a new course starting in 2017 and is currently subject to validation.
