Research Methods in Psychology

You will study fundamental analytical and methodological skills which are essential for all psychologists, with access to optional modules on research approaches in a variety of specific fields. The course prepares you for academic, clinical, educational or health psychology careers, or careers in which analytical techniques are of relevance. The flexibility and research focus of this course make it an excellent choice for those who wish to progress to a PhD. Teaching and supervision by active researchers mean that you will have the opportunity to learn about, and be involved in, the latest research developments. Our MSc courses are research-intensive, providing essential training in analytical ability, methods awareness and critical thinking, among other fundamental transferable skills.

Entry requirements

MSc: Due to the popularity of our programmes and the restricted numbers we are able to accept, we would recommend applying as early as possible to avoid disappointment. You are normally required to have obtained a good first or second class honours degree (or equivalent from a university outside the UK) in psychology or a related discipline (for example, cognitive neuroscience). Your degree should reflect psychology as a scientific discipline and have included the study of brain and behaviour. IELTS: 6.5 overall with no element less than 5.5 (or equivalent).
