This MSc Research Methods in Psychology long-standing course is designed to provide training in fundamental analytical and methodological skills which are essential for all psychologists.
You will study fundamental analytical and methodological skills which are essential for all psychologists, with access to optional modules on research approaches in a variety of specific fields.

Due to the popularity of our programmes and the restricted numbers we are able to accept, we would recommend applying as early as possible to avoid disappointment. You are normally required to have obtained a good first or second upper class honours degree (or equivalent from a university outside the UK) in psychology or a related discipline (for example, cognitive neuroscience). Your degree should reflect psychology as a scientific discipline and have included the study of brain and behaviour.
