Summary

The central objective of this programme is to equip you with an array of methodological skills to function as an effective PhD student or as a professional researcher in psychology, with a particular emphasis on cognitive, clinical, and clinical neuroscience research. You will acquire the skills necessary to generate good research questions, establish plausible theoretical answers, and carry out high-quality empirical research in order to test your hypotheses. At the end of your training you will have completed a research project that makes a contribution to the discipline and you will have the necessary skills and confidence to be able to operate independently in the future.

This MSc can be applied for as a stand-alone degree or form the first year of a PhD. It is delivered as part of the Economic and Social Research Council South West Doctoral Training Centre – a hub of world-class social science research.

This programme consists of compulsory taught modules and a substantial research project. It will acquaint you with a wide range of data analysis techniques and research methods in the areas of clinical neuroscience, and both clinical and cognitive psychology, while enabling you to develop particular specialist skills and knowledge in selected areas.

You will be able to get involved with one or more of the research groups in the department to explore your research interests further.
