Overview

The MSc in Health Psychology was developed in 2003. This course is approved by the British Psychological Society (BPS) for accreditation towards becoming a Chartered Psychologist and can be undertaken on either a full-time or part-time basis.

The course will be of interest to those wishing to pursue a career as a professional health psychologist or to those with an interest in the psychological concomitants of physical health. Future career opportunities for health psychologists are increasing and are available in the NHS, in industry and in academic settings.

Chartered psychologist status

The accredited MSc in Health Psychology will provide the first step towards Chartered Psychologist status for students who are eligible to hold the Graduate Basis for Chartered Membership with the British Psychological Society (BPS). Students will then need to complete a Stage 2 postgraduate training programme in health psychology to meet the requirements for the status of Chartered Psychologist (BPS) and Registered Health Psychologist (Health Professional Council). Students applying for this course must be eligible for Graduate Basis for Chartered Membership with the British Psychological Society (BPS).

Course details

Over the summer period towards the end of the course, you will undertake an applied research project. This is your opportunity to complete a major piece of independent research in a topic related to health psychology under the supervision of a suitably experienced member of academic staff.

The MSc in Health Psychology is delivered on a full-time basis over one year or part-time over two years. It commences in late September. The course comprises 180 credits, split across 120 credits' worth of core modules and a 60-credit research project.

Part-time students on this course are taught alongside full-time students and the choice of modules (and therefore the timetable) is flexible and a matter of agreement between student and course director. In all cases, part-time students can access a wide range of teaching and learning facilities remotely via the student portal.
