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 experience in research through placements across different laboratories working on thematically related research. This lab rotation offers strong candidates for doctoral research more scope to explore different topics within their interests than the traditional options at Master's level.

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.
