The part-time online MSc in Clinical Applications of Psychology provides modules in aspects of Psychology relevant to clinical practice.
The part-time online MSc in Clinical Applications of Psychology provides modules in aspects of Psychology relevant to clinical practice. The programme is designed for Psychology graduates who are intending to apply to doctoral training programmes in Clinical Psychology, and where the intention is to strengthen their credentials for the highly competitive entry process. This MSc will also equip students with advanced knowledge and research skills that would be desirable for graduates who have an interest in clinical psychology and clinical-related areas and intend to apply for further study such as a PhD or related doctorate programmes. The programme will develop and extend students’ knowledge of childhood psychopathology, adult mental health, issues in psychotherapy, neuropsychological assessment, professional issues, ethics and diversity, and clinical research methods. In addition, students will also undertake a research dissertation. This project will require students to formulate a detailed research question in a clinical related area of psychology, develop an appropriate research methodology, conduct the research in an ethically appropriate manner and ultimately produce an independent research article of a publishable standard. It is expected that most students accepted onto the MSc will be currently working in clinically relevant posts, such as psychology assistants, nursing assistants or therapy aides. This will enable students to reflect on the extent to which background and culture impact upon clinical work, and consider their own background and experiences.

Where possible module core texts have been chosen so as to be available as a free e-book. However, some core texts are not available as e-books and, in these situations, students will be advised to purchase personal hard copies. However, the expected cost of such texts is unlikely to exceed £150 in any given academic year (see note below). Obviously, even where e-books are available students may wish to purchase personal hard copies and this may increase the book expenditure further but this will be at each student’s personal discretion.
N.B. This estimated cost of texts is based on 2016 costs. All costs are subject to change and future costs may increase/decrease subject to format availabilities.
