The Psychosexual Therapy course will be delivered by practitioners who have a wealth of psychosexual experience between them. This is currently the most northerly psychosexual course available within the UK.

You’ll be required to take three theoretical modules in year 1, that will prepare you for the practitioner module and you will also need to complete a minimum of 120 hours client work across one academic year. In years 3 & 4 you will undertake a robust piece of empirical research and potentially complete the requisite number of hours for COSRT Psychotherapist Accreditation.

The course takes a Psycho-Bio-Medical Approach to the field of Psychosexual Medicine You will be introduced to the course and basic sexual and relationship theory. You will then study Relationships: Models and Interventions; and Diversity of Psychosexual Needs before taking the Psychosexual Practitioner module that is delivered over one academic year. You’ll also be required to complete an Introduction to Postgraduate Research module. The second year is closely linked to the practice of psychosexual therapy for which you will take a year-long placement in a psychosexual therapy clinic close to your area of employment.

For students who complete the MSc, are successful in completing COSRT accreditation, and who meet UKCP’s further requirements, may be eligible for UKCP registration.


As part of this course you will be required to become student members of COSRT and will therefore receive regular updates with regards to possible employment psychosexual opportunities throughout the UK. In addition, your placement will give you the opportunity to experience a working NHS psychosexual clinic.

Previous graduates of this type of course have advanced to become medical consultants within the NHS, or General Practitioners; within nursing to advance to become specialist nurse practitioners and nurse consultants; within Counselling & Psychotherapy to become consultant psychosexual therapists and to then move into teaching.

To progress onto the MSc from the PGCert students must pass an interview and receive a satisfactory status with a DBS Check. The placement in the second year will give students a wonderful opportunity to experience psychosexual therapy in practice and will also have the opportunity to learn from the required supervision which currently stands at 1.5 hours supervision for every 6 hours client work.

All immediate teaching staff involved with this course were trained on the fore-runner to this programme when it ran at UCLan until 2006 and each achieved a minimum of a pass with Merit. Peter Cardew currently works as a consultant psychosexual therapist in Manchester; Dr Karl Hollows is a Clinical Specialist in Stafford; Janice Lamb now works as a Psychosexual Therapist for Lancashire Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust and Carole Roberts is now Principal Psychosexual Therapist and Service Lead Psychosexual Service - SHARE – (Sexual Help & Relationship Enhancement) Community Health Services Division, Blackpool Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.


Students will have the opportunity to undertake a psychosexual placement within an existing NHS Psychosexual Therapy service although students (mainly doctors) who choose to undertake their practice within an existing service will have on going support provided by the university via placement audits and personal tutor support. Within the psychosexual placement you will receive on-going supervisory support in the ration of 1.5 hours supervision/6 hours of client therapy.

In terms of possible career paths, successful graduates will be eligible to apply for positions as a qualified Psychosexual Therapist and to work towards the completion of COSRT/UKCP Accreditation.

Graduates of this programme may wish to progress further onto research-based academic qualifications (e.g. MPhil/PhD).

The MSc in Psychology is a conversion course for individuals already possessing an undergraduate degree in a field other than Psychology but who wish to develop a professional career in Psychology. Previous study of psychology is not required.

By providing the requisite knowledge and skills for post-graduate education and training, this conversion course is the key gateway to a career in clinical, counselling, forensic, health, educational, occupational or other areas of Psychology.

Our previous Graduate Diploma level conversion course was accredited by the British Psychological Society (BPS) and satisfied the requirements for the Graduate Basis of Chartership of the BPS. This new Masters level conversion course is awaiting accreditation by the BPS and we expect to achieve accreditation by June 2017.

Psychology is an exceptionally versatile degree because it offers understanding of many aspects of human behaviour, applicable to many sectors of society, such as education, health, business and social welfare. The course is amongst the first in the UK to teach the core curriculum in an integrated fashion, which brings together different approaches to psychology within each module and thereby provides a deeper and richer understanding of human behaviour.

Having knowledge of the processes that underlie and influence learning, memory, social interactions, feelings, thinking and communication, combined with the development of skills in critical thinking and research, will put you in an excellent position for further post-graduate training or future employment.

We use a range of assessment methods within the Division of Psychology for different modules. The range of previously used methods are:

Practical/research reports
Unseen exams
Multiple choice questions
Scenario based reports
Case studies
Posters and presentations
Executive reports
Group work folders


As most psychology graduates will go into a wide range of careers, there is no such thing as a traditional career path for graduates. A majority of psychology graduates decide to pursue careers in other fields and as psychology graduates, they leave with an almost unmatched range of transferable skills, from excellent written and analytical skills to an understanding of how people behave.

However if you do want to stay in psychology, then a conversion course, accredited by the British Psychological Society (BPS), together with an appropriate qualification within the specific field of psychology could lead you to a career as a Chartered Psychologist in clinical, forensic, educational or occupational psychology. Although our previous conversion course and all our existing undergraduate courses are accredited by the BPS, this new Masters level conversion course is awaiting accreditation from the BPS and we expect this to be achieved by June 2017.

This course will teach you excellent written, analytical and numerical skills which will enable you to pursue a wide range of careers in areas such as counselling, teaching, the probation and court services, market research, human resources and business.

Careers support

Our department provides careers support and advice for the time our students study with us and beyond. We organise various careers activities such as talks and seminars, and have arranged work placements in collaboration with many organisations. For example:

• NHS clinics and hospital units (psychosexual, forensic and clinical psychology units)
• brain damage units
• addiction rehabilitation units
• charitable organisations working with stroke patients
• children with disabilities
• young offenders

We also hold an annual careers fair for our second and third year students and work closely with London South Bank University alumni who have gone on to successful careers in Psychology.

Career progression

Recent graduates have gone onto roles such as Assistant Psychologist (Clinical), Research Assistant, Social Worker, Mental Health Support Worker, and Mental Health Nurse.

If you graduate from this course, you'll be able to apply for further study at postgraduate level. The academic strength of this course means that you can also consider entering the field of academic research (e.g. a recent student has just started studying for a PhD)

If you gain significant professional practice experience you would be able to consider a practitioner MSc course such as our part-time MSc Addiction Psychology and Counselling.
