This programme is especially suitable for students with an undergraduate degree in psychology wishing to develop a career as an Occupational Psychologist.

Completion of the programme fulfils the requirements of the Stage 1 qualification for those wishing to go on to eventually become a HCPC-registered occupational psychologist. Students are given in-depth training by experienced researchers and practitioners to equip them to understand and analyse a wide range of psychological theories that can be applied in organisational settings. This is integrated with practical training on how to apply theory to influence important business decisions. There is a strong emphasis on developing critical thinking and consultancy skills as well as the ability to work effectively with a wide range of organisational stakeholders. Students extend and cement their practical skills by completing a research project that allows them to apply their knowledge to an organisational issue.
