Course content

Working life is complex and organisations are looking to executive coaching to help them work through the demands and challenges they face. In the Department of Organizational Psychology at Birkbeck we recognise the issues that organisations experience and have the expertise to support those demands.

Our new MSc Coaching Psychology expands on our successful Postgraduate Certificate in Coaching Psychology, offering you the opportunity for a deep exploration of this helping relationship. The programme combines practical and theoretical study to not only develop your professional expertise but also give you greater self-awareness and understanding. You will investigate pragmatically and critically how coaching works in organisations and how it is an important skill for leaders.

The skills and knowledge you gain from this MSc can be applied within your organisation and to leadership roles and help you progress a career in coaching.

Information for international students

If English is not your first language or you have not previously studied in English, our usual requirement is the equivalent of an International English Language Testing System (IELTS Academic Test) score of 6.5, with not less than 6.0 in each of the sub-tests.
