This recognised research training course provides students with knowledge of, and experience in, a wide range of research methods used in psychological research. In addition, it provides students with training in practical skills involved in conducting research, and in reporting research effectively both orally and in written forms of communication.
The course consists of small classes combined with an emphasis on individual tuition, a focus on ‘hands-on’ experience backed by appropriate theoretical knowledge, an availability of a wide range of options in areas of psychology in which the Department excels and makes use of excellent equipment and specialist research facilities.
It is especially suited to applicants who are considering doing a PhD, or wish to develop their research skills in preparation for further professional training (eg Clinical, Forensic, Educational, Health, Occupational Psychology), or who require additional training in psychological research methods to apply to their work environment.
