The goal of the structured MSc by research programme is to provide a high quality research experience with integrated taught support. Structured support is offered through generic/transferable skills modules and specialist modules to provide students with academic and professionals needed for careers in industry and academia. Under normal circumstances, students who intend to pursue a PhD but who do not already hold a postgraduate qualification in psychology are initially registered to undertake a Master’s degree, with transfer to the Doctoral programme subject to satisfactory progress. It is expected that campus-based postgraduate students will participate in demonstrating and tutoring to undergraduate students.
Research applications are generally accepted at any time. Commencement dates are restricted.
