Health Psychology

The programme aims to provide professional and academic training that will enable trainees to work as a Chartered Health Psychologist in a broad range of settings, including the NHS, charities, industry, government, private practice and academic and research settings, among others. The course provides students with doctoral level skills in health psychology, whilst developing the individual competencies and experience of students within a professional context. The aim of the course is for students to be able to practise competently and confidently in health psychology and produce an original piece of empirical research that contributes to the body knowledge in health psychology.
