"I thoroughly enjoyed my Mental Health Research MSc, not only does the course provide a well-rounded overview of a wide variety of topics, but the content was also both thought provoking and challenging. The quality of teaching was also very high, lectures were given by specialists in the field who could relay their hands-on experience, and provide an insightful overview. In addition lectures were often interactive, providing students the opportunity to discuss research and form opinions, giving a starting point for various pieces of coursework. Furthermore the course provides an excellent statistics course, a vital skill for research and clinical practice. This not only increased my confidence in statistics, but was also extremely useful during the statistical analysis stage of my MSc thesis. I am looking to pursue a career in Clinical Psychology and I think the skills I developed throughout this MSc will be invaluable, and definitely build upon and improve those achieved on an undergraduate course. Lastly, having completed both my degrees at Nottingham I couldn't recommend it more highly, both as a city and as a University campus, there is always something going on to get involved in, and the facilities are excellent!"
