Occupational Psychology

This course provides a higher qualification at doctorate level for established practitioners in occupational psychology based on their current or past professional work. You are helped to plan and conduct conceptually sound and ethically acceptable research, within the scientist-practitioner framework. You will also have access to the University's facilities such as the library, computers and video suites, although it is expected most research is to be conducted in your own organisation or work setting.

Entry requirements

You are required to have a membership with the Chartered Occupational Psychologists or be in the final stages of achieving Chartered status or its EU equivalent,
experience as a professional who might be able to meet the requirements of the doctorate based on work already completed, and evidence of an ability to conduct organisationally relevant and ethically sound research. All applicants must be able to demonstrate proficiency in the English language. Applicants who require a Tier 4 student visa may need to provide a Secure English Language Test (SELT) such as Academic IELTS.

Assessment methods

Assessment is by formal submission of the complete doctoral thesis and its successful defence at the viva voce examination; the examination of the thesis is conducted by examiners that are independent of the supervisory team.
