Postgraduate Taught Degrees

A taught postgraduate degree is an important next step for many psychology career pathways. Three of our masters degrees lead to a 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.

MSc Health Psychology

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 Certificates or Diplomas and often cater to those already in a healthcare setting.
