Occupational and Organisational Psychology (MSc)

Course Description

About this course

Every business needs to be successful. To ensure this, it’s vital to consider the roles of the employer and employee and the influences that can affect an individual’s level of engagement and wellbeing, which in turn affects both an individual's and a business’ performance.

This course, which is accredited by the British Psychological Society, delivers a mix of theory and practice in Occupational and Organisational Psychology, using real-life examples to bring the subject to life. Core modules include employee selection and assessment, workplace wellbeing, learning and development in organisations and psychological research methods.

The course uniquely includes a psychometric testing qualification – the Certificates in Occupational Testing – in addition to the core curriculum. This enables you to gain certificates in occupational testing for ability and personality and the additional qualifications will be a real boost to your career and employability, offering you a notable advantage after graduation.

You’ll also get to specialise in a particular area of interest through your thesis, which can include carrying out live projects with a range of organisations including, small medium enterprises, local authorities and NHS Trusts.

The course is available either full-time over one year or part-time over two years.
