Postgraduate Taught Degrees

For many career pathways, a  taught postgraduate psychology programme is an important next step.

Three of our taught programmes lead to an Masters (MSc) level qualification after one year's full-time study, or two years part-time. In some instances, individual modules may be taken on a standalone basis, although priority is given to students registered on the complete programme.

In addition to the three MSc programmes in Psychology, students have the opportunity to apply for funding for their postgraduate studies through the South Coast Doctoral Training Partnership. This ESRC-funded DTP awards up to 38 studentships per year to cover PhD (3 years), or Masters + PhD (4 years) study. 

We also offer a range of programmes in the area of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy. Pathways lead to Postgraduate Certificate or Diploma and often cater to those already in a healthcare setting.  

You can find a link to the programme overview and contact details for each of our PGT offerings below. If you are looking for more information, you may also want to view the eHandbook for each programme.

As there is a tight link between Taught and Research degrees in Psychology, you may also wish to look at our range of Research degree options as well.
