Studying on the Health Psychology Masters course at Buckingham has allowed me to develop strong skills central to working in research and other areas of Health Psychology. I have strong verbal and written communication skills, having had the opportunity to deliver conference style-presentations and therapeutic techniques such as motivational interviewing. Furthermore, a testament to the high level of writing skills I have developed as a result of studying at Buckingham is that I have a publication under my belt at Masters level, having my Masters dissertation published in the Journal of Health Psychology in June 2019. These skills have prepared me well for my job as a Research Assistant for Public Health England’s Behavioural Science Team within the Emergency Response Department. I put to use my abilities to thoroughly review and analyse research literature, my quantitative and qualitative data analysis knowledge and my report writing skills- to name a few. Ultimately, studying at Buckingham has given me a strong foundation for me to be able to build what I hope will be a successful and meaningful career in Health Psychology.
