If you have an academic background in Psychology or a relevant subject and an interest in undertaking further research, you’ll find this course especially engaging. The recently developed programme allows you to gain practical experience in research through placements across different laboratories. This approach lets you explore themes beyond traditional research boundaries. Laboratory rotation is particularly suitable if you’re interested in pursuing doctoral research, as it allows you to independently explore topics on your own terms. You will receive training in statistics, while you’re encouraged for the research theme modules to pursue your interests in line with the Department’s research specialisms (including Behavioural Science, Lifespan Health and Wellbeing, and Language and Learning).
You will do two placements during the course which allow you to contribute directly to the research area of your chosen supervisor(s). The research project element gives you the chance to develop your own area of study, supported through the advice of relevant academics.
Graduates from this course have subsequently obtained PhD places both at Warwick and elsewhere.
