Overview

Bridging the gap between medicine and psychology, the course focuses on understanding the behavioural processes around health and sickness. This programme will allow students to develop the knowledge and skills necessary for research and practice as a Health Psychologist. The programme covers a wide-range of approaches, from advanced research methods, through to a working and evidence-based knowledge of theory and behaviour change interventions.

Much like our undergraduate programme, this course will adopt a personalised teaching style built on creating relationships between students and staff. All modules use a tutorial style of teaching, in which students are taught weekly in groups of 7 or fewer, allowing for regular quality contact time with your lecturer. It is through this method that students can achieve excellence in their qualification in a supportive environment. 

 Over the course of the programme, you will develop a strong knowledge base and skill-set appropriate for professional practice in Health Psychology. You’ll learn to analyse, debate, discuss and devise behaviour change interventions for use in primary, secondary and community care. We encourage autonomy in design and analysis of research, allowing you to develop your skills towards becoming an independent researcher, with an increased awareness of the practical reality of working with short- and long-term health conditions.

 This is a one year, full-time programme accepting students in both September and January. Alongside the taught modules, there will be opportunities for you to gain practical work experience from our collaborations with Milton Keynes, Stoke Mandeville and Northampton General Hospitals. Taught modules include:

  • Health Communications and Context
  • Health Promotion and Behaviour Change
  • Managing Chronic Illness
  • Professional Skills: Health Psychology in Practice
  • Physiology, Epidemiology and Neuroimmunology
  • Advanced Qualitative Methods
  • Advanced Quantitative Methods
  • Dissertation in Health Psychology 

All modules are assessed by a combination of two assignments. Assignments differ according to the module requirements, but include a variety of assessment styles over the programme including written examinations, research reports, critical reflections and role plays.

Psychology at University of Buckingham

At Buckingham (http://www.buckingham.ac.uk/psychology) we pride ourselves on creating a positive learning environment based on a supportive, tutorial style of learning which is unique in the UK. All modules offer weekly, small-group learning in addition to traditional lectures and seminars, which creates unprecedented student-staff contact time and relationships (Top for Student-Staff Ratio in the UK, Top for Student Experience in the UK, Times & Sunday Times, 2017). It is this philosophy which we believe has kept the University at the top of the National Student Survey for over a decade (Top for Student Satisfaction in the UK, National Student Survey 2006-2016).

As a Department and a University we’re rapidly expanding, but strive to maintain the community feel which makes us different to other providers. We put great emphasis on individual attention to students, both academic and pastoral care. If you come to Buckingham you will certainly not get ‘lost in a crowd’, but instead get to know your lecturers and benefit from our passion for high quality teaching (Top for Teaching Quality in the UK, Times & Sunday Times, 2017; TEF Gold, 2017) and thriving research environment.

Centre for Health & Relationship Research

The MSc in Health Psychology sits within the Centre for Health and Relationship Research (CHR). The CHR is a research hub focusing upon research in five core areas: Pain, Social Support, Sexual & Reproductive Health, Spinal Cord Injury, and Health in Vulnerable Populations. The research hub aims to draw together research from clinical and non-clinical populations, based in the Department of Psychology and School of Medicine at the University of Buckingham, Stoke Mandeville Hospital Buckinghamshire Healthcare NHS Trust, Milton Keynes University Hospital NHS Foundation Trust, and health and social care-related organisations based in Buckinghamshire, Hertfordshire, Northamptonshire and Oxfordshire.

Course outline

We currently offer the opportunity to gain a postgraduate degree by research at the level of MSc, MPhil or DPhil (PhD). Study can be on either a full-time or a part-time basis. The minimum periods of study for achieving these research degrees are as follows:

• MSc – 1 year full-time or 2 years part-time
• MPhil – 2 years full-time or 4 years part-time
• DPhil – 3 years full-time or 6 years part-time (this is our equivalent term for a PhD)

The Psychology Department fosters a culture of collaborative, multidisciplinary research, and you will join a vibrant community that includes regular work-in-progress seminars to foster an active research environment. You will join one of our four research hubs described below, all of which are engaged in inter-institutional collaborations, including some with non-academic partners such as health-care providers and music conservatoires.

We are happy to consider research proposals on a wide range of topics relevant to our hubs, but may also be looking to fill specific research roles in some areas. Contact us below for more details.

Our Research Hubs

‘CREATE’ (Centre for Research into Expertise Acquisition, Training and Excellence)

The main focus of the centre is the exploration of the drivers of excellence in performance (whether cognitive, creative or practice-based). We welcome applications from potential MSc and DPhil candidates across a wide range of related topic areas, including:

• Insight and creativity
• The drivers of performance excellence and expertise development (e.g. in music, theatre, puzzle-solving, board-games and medicine)
• Hobbies, motivations and characteristics of niche populations
• Music psychology
• Time perception and those with ‘natural’ time-keeping abilities

We have a number of external collaborative projects in the areas of creativity and performance, and also work with internal colleagues in Applied Computing and the University of Buckingham Medical School.

Centre for Health and Relationship Research

The main aim of the hub is to study the impact of the interpersonal world and support structures on health and well-being in clinical and non-clinical settings. This overarching focus has led to the study of topic areas such as:

• Prevalence, impact of and psychosocial challenges facing people following spinal cord injury
• Biopsychosocial understanding of pain and developing interventions for successful pain management
• Social norms as a predictor of health behaviours in young people
• Social factors affecting uptake of health behaviours
• The role of social support in living well with chronic conditions

Together, these projects represent a body of work which seeks to fight patient isolation and to understand health experiences in the context of a social world. The hub aims to identify methods for supporting patients as they live with long-term conditions, including through developing interventions, assessment techniques and knowledge dissemination. With connections and active research work taking part at four local NHS hospitals, we can offer excellent opportunities for research studies with tangible impact.

Emotion and Life-Span Relationships

The Emotion and Life-Span Relationships hub offers diverse research opportunities including:

• Cyberpsychology and Cyberbullying, including online gaming
• Cyber versus real world behaviour
• Social inference and emotion regulation
• Interpersonal relationships, including dating, rejection, relationship maintenance and break down
• Mental resilience and its relationship to social support

Psychology of Educational Development

In this hub, we study the cognitive processes, behavioural issues and developmental factors that affect learning, and how learning environments and individual differences influence educational outcomes. With a focus on the resilience, creativity and happiness of learners, as well as on Specific Learning Difficulties which might impact upon academic performance, we welcome applicants to study a wide range of topics with us, including:

• Children with Specific Learning Difficulties
• Bullying and Cyberbullying in schools
• Educating for Creativity
• Children's understanding of Science
• Excellence in Performance and Academic achievement
• Resilience, Wellbeing and Positive education
