Who is it for?

These courses are for high-performing, self-directed individuals who want to learn about complex problems of health and healthcare from a psychological perspective. Applicants will have the desire to conduct innovative research to understand these issues and develop and evaluate potential solutions. The programme is a Stage 1 Health Psychology qualification accredited by the British Psychological Society (BPS). It has been designed for students who would like to go on to a PhD or DPsych in Health Psychology.

The MSc Health Psychology is for students with an undergraduate degree accredited by the British Psychological Society. If you do not have Graduate Basis for Registration with the BPS but would like to undertake a Masters degree in this subject, we offer the MSc Psychology and Health as an equivalent programme with identical modules (but no accreditation by the BPS).

Objectives

Health psychology explores the psychological and behavioural processes that influence the maintenance and promotion of health, the development of illness, and the delivery of healthcare through rigorous research that feeds into evidence-based practice.

Teaching at City promotes the scientist-practitioner model in which research influences how we practice, while allowing our experiences in practice to shape the research questions we address.

We recognise that great research will not make a difference to people’s lives unless the lessons learned feed into interventions for the public, patients and healthcare professionals.  You will learn how to make research evidence accessible to help maximise its impact.

Taught by a team of leading research-active academics, who are members of the Centre for Health Services Research (CHSR), the MSc Health Psychology/ Psychology & Health programme is designed to give you foundational knowledge to propel you to an exciting career in the discipline.

Here are some examples of the kinds of questions the course considers:

  • How can psychological theory help us understand health and illness behaviours?
  • What can be done to promote and sustain health lifestyles?
  • How can we help people cope with a diagnosis?
  • What are the challenges facing individuals living with long-term conditions?
  • How can we make complex behavioural interventions more effective?

Accreditation

The MSc in Health Psychology has been accredited by the British Psychological Society (BPS) since 1999 and confers the Stage 1 requirements towards becoming a Health Psychologist.

The MSc in Psychology and Health, which is not accredited by the BPS, was set up in 1999 for applicants who do not have Graduate Basis for Chartered Membership (GBC) with the BPS, but who have an interest in psychological issues related to health.

Teaching and learning

The course uses a range of teaching methods including classroom teaching, seminars and workshops. You will also be able to learn from our on-site TECS lab. This is a dedicated smart home equipped with tele-health and tele-care applications and an adjacent monitoring system.

The purpose of the TECS lab is to enable researchers to monitor long-term conditions, and use technology to track an individual’s health in real time. For example seat and bed occupancy sensors enable health psychologists to monitor physical movement and intervene when routine behaviours are disrupted.

Assessment

You will be assessed through a varied combination of formats throughout the programme including coursework, examination, a diary component, online discussion forums and a significant piece of empirical research.

Modules

The programme consists of eight compulsory modules and all the teaching takes place in the first two terms. In term one you will be introduced to behavioural medicine, lifestyle, gender and culture, theoretical foundations of health psychology and research design and statistics. In the second term you study understanding and managing long term conditions, developing complex interventions, professional practice and contextual issues in health psychology and advanced research design and statistics. The third term is dedicated to the dissertation.

You may have the opportunity to interact directly with patients or healthcare professionals at the dissertation stage of this Masters degree. You will be conducting your own independent research and this may, for example, involve interviewing patients or professionals about a particular subject, or delivering behaviour change interventions.

To become a qualified researcher and practitioner, you will need to be able to understand and critique published research and to understand practitioner issues, so you can conduct your own research from scratch. At City we will encourage you to conduct research on the front line working on projects that require ethical approval, where you are engaging with real people so you can have a direct impact on their lives.

Core modules

  • Theoretical foundations of health psychology (15 credits)
  • Behavioural medicine (15 credits)
  • Understanding and managing long-term conditions (15 credits)
  • Lifespan, gender & culture (15 credits)
  • Developing complex interventions (15 credits)
  • Professional and contextual Issues in health psychology (15 credits)
  • Introduction to research design & statistics (15 credits)
  • Advanced research design & statistics (15 credits)
  • Dissertation (60 credits)

Career prospects

Health psychologists work in academia as researchers and within the NHS and the wider healthcare sector. The nature of the work means you will be trying to influence public health policy in terms of the way that health care is practised. You will also be evaluating how health care professionals do their work while adhering to the best clinical standards.

Becoming a healthcare psychologist

As a UK student, because the Health Psychology MSc is accredited, it is known as Stage 1 of the standard training in healthcare psychology. By successfully completing this course you will be able to move on to Stage 2 training (a doctoral level qualification in health psychology). This leads to becoming a fully recognised health psychologist whereby you can apply for Chartered Membership of the British Psychological Society (BPS) and apply for registration with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC).

Full membership of the Division of Health Psychology means you will also be eligible to apply for registration with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) as a Chartered Health Psychologist. You can only use the protected title ‘Health Psychologist’ by registering with the HCPC, the statutory regulator.

Who is it for?

The Graduate Certificate in Counselling Psychology is for students who are planning to go on and do further graduate work, whether through a Doctorate in Counselling Psychology or a related profession.

The course is for students who have an undergraduate degree, but you do not have to have a first degree in psychology. Some students use the programme as a bridge towards further study in counselling psychology, while others apply their knowledge and skills from the course within the counselling or psychotherapy profession.

As well as fulfilling the academic side of the programme, you need to be willing to investigate yourself and be open to exploring personal and interpersonal dynamics. This is a course for those with a willingness to expose their vulnerabilities and explore their own and others’ inner worlds.

Objectives

The Graduate Certificate in Counselling Psychology has been designed to give you an excellent foundation for further advanced study in counselling psychology or related areas. A one-year part-time course, the programme blends theory and practice so you gain a rigorous academic base in counselling and psychology, as well as a significant and varied practical component.

Emphasising the connection between psychological theory and counselling, this programme is not just about understanding knowledge – it is about understanding how to apply what you have learned to ensure that your practice promotes psychological development.

On our Graduate Certificate programme, we focus on the therapeutic relationship between the therapist and the client and concentrate on the personal subjective experience of the whole person. This makes the emphasis of our approach holistic rather than diagnostic, in keeping with the ethos of counselling psychology.

You will investigate person-centred, psychodynamic and cognitive behavioural theories and use a range of practical modes from client case studies and interviews to personal diaries and role-play exercises.

Here are some of the questions the course poses:

  • How can I connect psychological theory with practice in a way that can lead to psychological growth?
  • How can I create a meaningful connection?
  • What do I need to understand about my own psychology to be able to help others?
  • How has my experience on this course influenced my own personal and professional development?

Accreditation

This is not a professional training programme and is not intended to train you to be an independent practitioner. If you wish to undertake professional training in counselling psychology, leading to registration with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) and chartered membership with the British Psychological Society (BPS) please see our Professional Doctorate in Counselling Psychology.

Teaching and learning

Practising clinicians teach this programme so you gain insight from experts working within the field who offer clinical examples from their own experience. Lecture sizes tend to be fairly small (typically around 25 people) so you learn within an intimate environment.

You will learn through a variety of methods including lectures, role-playing exercises and group presentations.

Dr Sara Chaudry is the course director of the Graduate Certificate in Counselling Psychology Programme. Sara is also tutor and lecturer on the Professional Doctorate in Counselling Psychology. She has a broad range of clinical experience from working with diverse client groups, and she currently works in private practice.

Assessment

To be awarded the Graduate Certificate qualification, you must successfully complete one piece of coursework for each of the six modules. Coursework formats include written assignments, a reflective diary, project work and class-based role-plays and presentations. Your project, which is a literature review where you choose a topic of interest and write a 2000-word essay, focuses on a specific mental health or psychological subject.

Modules

This course runs on one day a week (on a Wednesday) for one academic year. It consists of six modules, four of which are taught modules and two of which take the form of a project and personal and professional development. You will study two of the taught modules in the first term, and the other two in the second term. We expect you to use the time between the teaching hours for independent study.

One of the unique features of the programme is the variety of ways in which you apply your learning. For example within the ‘theoretical models in counselling psychology’ module, you will be given a client case and asked to write up a client study as though you were seeing the person in practice. This gives you the opportunity to choose a theoretical model and apply it within a client context.

Similarly, within the ‘understanding mental health module’, you learn about conditions including depression, anxiety, and psychosis and demonstrate your understanding by delivering a class presentation. You will also be asked to create a booklet for a layperson explaining a condition. In these ways, the course gives you opportunities to translate the theory you have learned into a practical application with a real-world impact.

Core Modules

  • (PS3503): Counselling across the lifespan (15 credits)
  • (PS3502): Counselling skills (15 credits)
  • (PS3504): Theoretical models in counselling psychology (15 credits)
  • (PS3501): Understanding mental health (15 credits)

Independent Project

  • (PS3505) Project for GCCP (15 credits)
  • (PS3506): Personal and professional development (15 credits)

Career prospects

For many students the programme is a means to progress towards doctoral study. Created with psychology graduates, healthcare professionals, teachers, social workers, managers and others professionals in mind, it gives you the opportunity to develop your interpersonal and counselling skills and improve the way you apply these skills within your professional practice.

Counselling psychology at the doctoral level is still a relatively new field in the UK. At City we offer the Professional Doctorate in Counselling Psychology, which many students choose to move on to after completing the Graduate Certificate.

City was the first institution in the UK to provide UK-accredited counselling psychology training. City’s Professional Doctorate in Counselling Psychology is one of the largest of its kind, and has made City one of the premiere institutions for counselling psychology training.

Timetable information

Full-time study requires two full days attendance per week in autumn and two-and-a-half days attendance per week in spring and submission of an MSc dissertation at the end of the academic year. Part-time study (over two years) requires one full day of attendance per week in the first part-time year and in autumn of the second part-time year and one-and-a-half days attendance per week in spring of the second part-time year and submission of an MSc dissertation at the end of the second part-time year.

Moving to one campus

Between 2016 and 2020 we're investing £125 million in the London Metropolitan University campus, moving all of our activity to our current Holloway campus in Islington, north London. This will mean the teaching location of some courses will change over time.

Whether you will be affected will depend on the duration of your course, when you start and your mode of study. The earliest moves affecting new students will be in September 2017. This may mean you begin your course at one location, but over the duration of the course you are relocated to one of our other campuses. Our intention is that no full-time student will change campus more than once during a course of typical duration.

All students will benefit from our move to one campus, which will allow us to develop state-of-the-art facilities, flexible teaching areas and stunning social spaces.

The key feature of this module is a 35 day work placement in a setting relevant to clinical psychology. This pathway would suit students with limited work experience in areas related to clinical psychology, and who would like to develop a career in a more applied setting.

Students on the Research in Clinical Psychology pathway complete the following modules:

  • Advanced Quantitative Methods
  • Applied Research Design in Clinical Psychology
  • Statistical Data Analysis Project

These modules are designed to provide students with more advanced research knowledge and skills.

The MSc in Psychology is a conversion course for individuals already possessing an undergraduate degree in a field other than Psychology but who wish to develop a professional career in Psychology. Read more
The MSc in Psychology is a conversion course for individuals already possessing an undergraduate degree in a field other than Psychology but who wish to develop a professional career in Psychology. Previous study of psychology is not required.

By providing the requisite knowledge and skills for post-graduate education and training, this conversion course is the key gateway to a career in clinical, counselling, forensic, health, educational, occupational or other areas of Psychology.

Our previous Graduate Diploma level conversion course was accredited by the British Psychological Society (BPS) and satisfied the requirements for the Graduate Basis of Chartership of the BPS. This new Masters level conversion course is awaiting accreditation by the BPS and we expect to achieve accreditation by June 2017.

Psychology is an exceptionally versatile degree because it offers understanding of many aspects of human behaviour, applicable to many sectors of society, such as education, health, business and social welfare. The course is amongst the first in the UK to teach the core curriculum in an integrated fashion, which brings together different approaches to psychology within each module and thereby provides a deeper and richer understanding of human behaviour.

Having knowledge of the processes that underlie and influence learning, memory, social interactions, feelings, thinking and communication, combined with the development of skills in critical thinking and research, will put you in an excellent position for further post-graduate training or future employment.

Modules

Emotion and human behaviour
Perception, attention and memory
Social behaviour
Thinking, intelligence and communication
Psychological Research Methods 1+2
Masters Empirical Research Project

Assessment

We use a range of assessment methods within the Division of Psychology for different modules. The range of previously used methods are:

Essays
Practical/research reports
Unseen exams
Multiple choice questions
Scenario based reports
Case studies
Posters and presentations
Executive reports
Portfolios
Group work folders

Employability

As most psychology graduates will go into a wide range of careers, there is no such thing as a traditional career path for graduates. A majority of psychology graduates decide to pursue careers in other fields and as psychology graduates, they leave with an almost unmatched range of transferable skills, from excellent written and analytical skills to an understanding of how people behave.

However if you do want to stay in psychology, then a conversion course, accredited by the British Psychological Society (BPS), together with an appropriate qualification within the specific field of psychology could lead you to a career as a Chartered Psychologist in clinical, forensic, educational or occupational psychology. Although our previous conversion course and all our existing undergraduate courses are accredited by the BPS, this new Masters level conversion course is awaiting accreditation from the BPS and we expect this to be achieved by June 2017.

This course will teach you excellent written, analytical and numerical skills which will enable you to pursue a wide range of careers in areas such as counselling, teaching, the probation and court services, market research, human resources and business.

Careers support

Our department provides careers support and advice for the time our students study with us and beyond. We organise various careers activities such as talks and seminars, and have arranged work placements in collaboration with many organisations. For example:

• NHS clinics and hospital units (psychosexual, forensic and clinical psychology units)
• brain damage units
• addiction rehabilitation units
• charitable organisations working with stroke patients
• children with disabilities
• young offenders

We also hold an annual careers fair for our second and third year students and work closely with London South Bank University alumni who have gone on to successful careers in Psychology.

Career progression

Recent graduates have gone onto roles such as Assistant Psychologist (Clinical), Research Assistant, Social Worker, Mental Health Support Worker, and Mental Health Nurse.

If you graduate from this course, you'll be able to apply for further study at postgraduate level. The academic strength of this course means that you can also consider entering the field of academic research (e.g. a recent student has just started studying for a PhD)

If you gain significant professional practice experience you would be able to consider a practitioner MSc course such as our part-time MSc Addiction Psychology and Counselling.
