This course is designed for students with a desire to understand the world around them, and who want to take their first steps towards a PhD and a career in research.
You’ll be supervised by a member of our research-focused team with expertise in qualitative and/or quantitative methods to complete a dissertation research project on a topic you care about.

Having such a research active Psychology Department at Manchester Met, I have been inspired by published research as it exemplifies the academic standard to which I should aspire to replicate in my own research and is beneficial for my personal research objectives.

I strongly believe the university values and appreciates all of its students, and encourages everyone to engage and reach their potential
