MPhil & PhD
We look for a first or 2:1 UK Honours degree, or overseas equivalent, in Psychology or a similar discipline.
However, the majority of our MPhil and PhD students will usually have completed a Master's degree in Psychology after their Honours degree.
Also, if English isn't your first language, you'll also need to have a recent UKVI recognised Secture English Language Test (SELT) qualification.
You'll need to be a practising educational psychologist when you're planning to join this programme.
Your application must be supported by the Principal Educational Psychologist of the service you're working in.
Months of entry
You can study an MPhil over the course of one year, a DEdPsy over two years or a PhD over three years.
MPhil and PhD
You can study either an MPhil or a PhD within any of our three research areas:
As part of your MPhil or PhD, you'll be enrolled on a Postgraduate Certificate in Researcher Professional Development (PgCert RDP) course for which you'll have to complete a range of personal, professional and career development activities.
These activities aim to develop the transferrable skills you'll use throughout your career and also within a particular researcher development framework.
Our DEdPsy degree is specific to Educational Psychology.
