We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
Psychology at Kent offers a supportive, dynamic and diverse environment for creative research and learning. We conduct both basic and applied research in several areas, and we are highly regarded as a leading European centre for postgraduate research.
We have a long-established international reputation in social psychology, and this is complemented by our strengths in cognitive, developmental and forensic psychology. Our taught MSc programmes have been recognised by the UK Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) as meeting the nationally recognised criteria for preparation training for PhD research. The MSc in Forensic Psychology at Kent is also accredited by the British Psychological Society as providing the first (academic) year of professional training for those who pass the course and wish to qualify as Chartered Forensic Psychologists. The MSc in Organisational and Business Psychology is accredited by the Association for Business Psychology and offers the opportunity to certify as an Associate Business Psychologist.
Kent has an excellent postgraduate employment record: 92% of our postgraduate students who graduated in 2017 and responded to a national survey were in work or further study within six months (DLHE).
