Organisational Psychology

This course is for students who want to make work a better place to be. It is for those who want to understand why a system is flawed and find the solutions to resolve it. You will need to be able to deal with complexity and ambiguity because, although organisational psychology is a science, often there is no single answer. We welcome applicants with a degree in Psychology, from a UK or international institution. We will also consider those with other degrees and a keen interest in making the workplace better. You will be expected to conduct some statistical analysis as part of the course so some experience working with data would be beneficial. The programme has been designed to give you the theoretical and practical knowledge you will need to work as an organisational psychologist. Developed to reflect the Department's unique research strengths, you will have access to specialist topics such as mindfulness within the workplace and pro-environmental behaviour - subjects you can't study elsewhere.

Entry requirements

All applicants should have an upper second class honours degree (or an equivalent grade from an overseas institution). It is also helpful for your application if you are able to demonstrate some work experience. Work experience in a psychological or human resource setting is highly desirable, but not essential.

Applicants who are interested in becoming a chartered psychologist within the British system should hold the Graduate Basis for Chartered Membership (GBC) with the British Psychological Society (BPS). This membership is usually granted automatically to individuals who completed an undergraduate degree in psychology that is recognised by the BPS.

Please note that admission to the MSc in Organisational Psychology is highly competitive, and you are recommended to apply early in the year of entry to avoid disappointment.
