Health Psychology

In this vocational programme you will learn about psychological principles used to research and promote changes in people's attitudes, behaviour and thinking about health and illness. The MSc, accredited by the British Psychological Society (BPS), is designed to provide training in health psychology that meets BPS requirements. Its completion enables you to undertake the Stage 2 training which enables you to apply for registration with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) as a health psychologist. The course is led by chartered psychologists and teaching staff who are active in research. It is further enhanced by our close working relationships with health and social care providers which enable us to offer placement and research opportunities providing key experience and improved career prospects. Students are taught how to design, plan and conduct health-related research and how to evaluate papers, theories, findings and methods used within health psychology. Learning takes place in lectures, seminars, laboratories and through directed personal study. There is also an opportunity to undertake a placement. All students are supported through the design, conduct, analysis and write-up of an empirical research project. The MSc is studied full-time over one year starting in September and comprises two semesters of taught modules followed by an individual research project.
