Course content

Our MSc Clinical and Health Psychology course is designed for students considering a career in clinical or health psychology and can be taken on a full-time or part-time basis.

You will gain a thorough grounding in the current theoretical understanding of the psychology of physical and mental health problems.

You will also learn about the principles and evidence-base of psychological interventions to change behaviour and cognition at the individual, group and population level, as well as the role of psychologists within healthcare settings such as the NHS and how the science of psychology is applied in clinical practice.

In addition, you will receive advanced training in the methodology and analysis techniques used within clinical and health psychology research.

You will benefit from the expertise of clinically active members of the Clinical Psychology programme team who contribute to our teaching sessions and provide research supervision.

This MSc does not replace or guarantee entry onto an accredited Clinical Psychology Doctoral training programme.

This MSc is not an accredited Stage 1 Health Psychology programme. Applicants interested in Stage 1 Health Psychology should apply for our BPS-accredited MSc Health Psychology.
