What career can you have?

Our MSc courses are research intensive, providing essential training in analytical ability, methods awareness and critical thinking, among other fundamental transferable skills. Our courses have a long-standing reputation for preparing students to undertake PhD research and postgraduate clinical training. Our students have moved on to PhD positions, research assistant or assistant psychologist posts in the NHS and private sector, clinical training, as well as non-psychology positions in industry.


Complement your postgraduate study of Psychology through a number of NHS partnered clinics, professional training centres and research placements in neuroscience, developmental psychopathology and clinical research.

The Centre for Integrative Neuroscience and Neurodynamics provides access to state-of-the art technology and expertise in cognitive and computational neuroscience, alongside facilities for experimental and observational research, including a number of specialist laboratories (e.g. virtual reality, ageing, infant vision, infant language, auditory perception, body kinematics, psychophysiology, TMS, EEG).

We provide excellence in research training for both specialist and transferable skills. You will benefit from the many collaborative ventures of staff and from their involvement with major psychological societies, international conferences, journals and funding bodies.

We monitor your progress carefully and coursework is used as an opportunity for feedback and personal development.
