MSc Psychological Research

MSc Psychological Research

The MSc in Psychological Research is specifically designed for students who wish to pursue a career as researchers. It offers the opportunity to gain practical research experience through placements across different laboratories (in terms 1 and 2), followed by an independently conducted project in term 3. This lab rotation provides a unique opportunity to gain first-hand experience with current approaches and cutting-edge methods, and offers strong candidates for doctoral research more scope to explore different topics within their interests than the traditional options at Master's level do.

Note that this programme is not designed for students who are primarily interested in applied psychology such as clinical psychology or behavioural economics. For those students, we offer MSc programs in Clinical Applications of PsychologyLink opens in a new window, Behavioural and Economic ScienceLink opens in a new window and Behavioural and Data Science.

The deadline for applications for 24/25 entry is Friday 12th July 2024.
