Study postgraduate Psychology

Taught postgraduate study

Bridging the gap between Medicine and Psychology, our MSc in Health Psychology focuses on understanding the behavioural processes around health and sickness. It is one of the few BPS (British Psychological Society) accredited courses in this subject to offer an 18-week placement.

Our programme is designed to help students develop a wide variety of knowledge and skills across all of the main areas of health psychology at postgraduate level. It will provide students with a solid foundation for further study and employment in a variety of areas, including psychology and research assistantships, PhDs, and further training in health or clinical psychology.

Postgraduate study by research

We currently offer the opportunity to gain a postgraduate degree by research at the level of MSc or PhD. Study can be on either a full-time or a part-time basis.

We are happy to consider research proposals on a wide range of topics relevant to our hubs, but may also be looking to fill specific research roles in some areas. Click on the links below to find out more about our research courses:
