Flexible learning

We offer a mix of both applied and research-oriented programmes. Many of these give a choice of both entry and exit points. You can work, for example, towards a Postgraduate Certificate or Diploma, continuing this to a full Masters qualification. A one-year taught masters course is the usual foundation for a three year PhD by research.

Other doctoral programmes are based on a mix of taught and research components. These give dedicated training for specialists, and are typically funded by the NHS, LEAs or other agencies.

Additionally, Psychology offers a range of professional development programmes.

All programmes are constantly under review, ensuring the best fit for you and your career.

By challenging yourself you not only learn new skills but you also learn a lot about yourself. This can give you the confidence to know that you can cope in any situation and with whatever life throws at you.
