Psychological Research Methods (Cognition and Neuropsychology) MSc

Course content

The Psychological Research Methods (Cognition and Neuropsychology) postgraduate degree provides broad training in the fundamentals of psychological science - the modern approach to studying mind and behaviour. The course will train you in psychological theory and develop your practical skills, preparing you for a future career in psychology. Individual modules provide a thorough introduction to quantitative and qualitative research, the analysis and interpretation of data and a critical, sceptical approach to psychological science.

There’s lots of opportunities for you to gain practical hands-on skills development, ranging from low-tech observational assessment to high-tech eye-tracking. There’s also training on giving oral presentations. A self-reflective approach to personal development is encouraged.

The course will appeal to anyone wishing to develop a career in psychological research, either working towards a PhD in Psychology, or working in the wider public, private or third sector.

You’ll be based in a dedicated MSc office, or within an appropriate research group, and allocated a peer mentor. You’ll also have an academic supervisor in Psychology who supports and guides your development including the research dissertation project. We’re here to encourage you to make the transition to become a fully independent research scientist.

Work placements

You’ll carry out a month-long placement. This is typically in an external company, charity or third sector organisation. The placement is a fantastic opportunity for you to develop relevant work-based employment skills, and to cultivate a network of contacts relevant to your future career goals. Our students benefit hugely from their placement experience, as it allows them to combine their skills and experience with personal and professional development.

Faculty facilities

The Psychology department has outstanding laboratory space fitted with high-quality equipment. It has excellent computing infrastructure, and both research and teaching activities are supported by in-house technical staff with computing, programming, electronic and audio-video expertise.

We’ve invested heavily in research infrastructure, including our own pre-school playgroup, which provides an outstanding facility for developmental research and teaching. Purpose-built laboratory space has also been created to support human electrophysiology research (EEG/ERPs), health research (including GSR and heart rate monitoring), face research (including eye-tracking) and vision research (including stereoscopic displays).
