Course content

This programme will take your psychological skills and understanding to the next level. You’ll learn advanced psychology concepts and develop your understanding of how these can be applied to various business issues, such as the assessment of individuals in the workplace, organisational behaviour as well as strategy and leadership. This will prepare you for a variety of roles, in areas including assessment, selection, recruitment, learning and development, occupational health and wellbeing and other areas of workplace psychology.

You’ll develop an understanding of what makes a healthy, happy and effective organisation. We use a very practical approach to enhance your learning experience. For example, you’ll look at research studies about human behaviour in the workplace, as well as case studies linking employee well-being and the efficiency of organisations. This will give you the ability and confidence to practically apply psychological concepts to a business environment.

We also focus on developing a range of specific practical skills throughout the course. You’ll appreciate how to apply these to different organisational settings, such as the public or private sectors. We’ll teach you effective training and development tools, various approaches to change management as well as negotiating techniques, which are key to dealing with difficult workplace situations. These practical skills will significantly enhance your employability and better equip you for a variety of graduate roles. 

You’ll benefit from learning from one of the best known and most successful academic groups in applied psychology in Europe. The School is recognised as being at the forefront of research into this field. It also boasts experienced practitioners who’ve worked for businesses across the world.

They use a mix of innovative and inspiring teaching methods to enable you to get the most from the course and all sessions are delivered in a friendly, supportive atmosphere.

This course is designed for students with an undergraduate degree in psychology recognised by the BPS with graduate basis for registrations (GBR). If you didn’t specialise in psychology at undergraduate level or your psychology degree doesn’t give you GBR status, then please consider our MSc in Organisational Behaviour.
