We normally admit graduates in Psychology with a first or second class (upper division) honours to this master's in research methods in psychology. Graduates in other disciplines or with other qualifications are sometimes admitted if their earlier training has special relevance to the psychological problems they wish to investigate.
Months of entry
Acquire the methodological skills to become a successful PhD student or professional researcher in psychology or within a career in which analytic techniques are required. Our students go on to pursue postgraduate clinical training, to take up research assistant or assistant psychologist posts in the NHS and private sector or to take up non-psychological posts in industry.
The programme provides advanced training in a variety of research methods and data analytic techniques equipping you with the expertise to conduct high quality and impactful research in your chosen field. You’ll learn how to apply your taught skills to your own research questions and in addition to classroom instruction will receive structured support as you develop your research questions, plan and execute the research, analyse the data, and prepare reports describing your findings.
