Study type Taught


An applied psychology Master's, aimed at those who wish to work in mental health and rehabilitation, or pursue a career in research.

  • Study current and emerging theories of brain function.

  • Learn how such research can be used in clinical settings.

  • Develop the skills you'll need to undertake a professional doctorate.

This Psychology in Practice Master's degree offers opportunities to learn about areas of specific applied psychology.

On the Neuropyschology pathway, you'll focus your studies on brain function after disease and injury. Understanding the way the brain operates can help us treat problems such as dementia and stroke, as well as depression, psychosis, ADHD, and other similar conditions.

You'll look at the most recent research and discover how it can be used to help people that are experiencing chronic problems of all kinds.

This MSc in Psychology aims to give you experience of the types of skills you need to flourish in clinic, as well as a more conceptual understanding of contemporary issues in applied psychology.

The course is designed to help with doctoral level applications, but we also offer an overview of grassroots community psychology to cover the types of NHS or third-sector employment students seek after graduation. We aim to deepen your understanding of the challenges of the practicing psychologist, and to make the next level of your career more accessible.
