Course content

Welcome to the MSc Applied Psychology, a unique programme in Dubai offering students a range of modules that give a taste of various applied psychological fields. As a campus of Middlesex University we bring you an internationally recognised degree developed by the expertise of applied and academic psychologists.

In particular, the MSc Applied Psychology programme has been designed with the international student in mind providing an introduction to a wide variety of applications for psychology in the real world. This allows students to gain diverse academic skills and psychological knowledge which can be applied to their individual situations and careers. It may also be used as a stepping stone for personal development and potentially future studies in psychology.

The degree focuses on the application of psychological science to work and daily life and showcases the many fields covered by the psychology profession. These include: organisation, counselling and neuropsychology of education. In each case the understanding of human behaviour students gain can be generalised beyond the specific field of psychology. For example, counselling skills such as listening and re-formulating a problem are at the core of managerial skills. Also understanding how people manage their health and wellbeing is important in families dealing with illness or for individuals trying to kick bad habits such as smoking.

Psychology is one of those subjects where a little bit of genuine interest and understanding goes a long way. We encourage students to read widely and to consider how theories and research expand their knowledge.

Information for international students

We understand that moving to another country can be a very daunting prospect for many students, especially if it is their first time away from their family, which is why we make it our priority to ensure that international students feel welcome, settled and part of the community.

The University has over 3,600 students from more than 100 nationalities, and we encourage students to embrace the cultures of others as well as sharing their own. Events such as ‘World Food Day’ and our highly anticipated ‘International Day’ enable our students to celebrate and promote the culture and traditions of their home countries.

Dubai is one of the most culturally diverse places in the world, and there are so many things to do and see! In this section, students can find useful contact numbers and websites, information about the UAE, things to do in Dubai and more…
