Course content

Occupational Psychology applies psychological understanding to workplace, business and organisational issues, and is one of the key applied fields of psychology. Many businesses and organisations employ occupational psychologists to help identify and address many of the key issues organisations face today, like how to select the best talent, train leaders, manage teams, engage employees and develop a culture of innovation all using evidence-based solutions.

The MSc Occupational Psychology curriculum at UWE Bristol is designed to cover the most up-to-date BPS guidelines (2014) in Stage-1 training for Occupational Psychology, which have been developed in conjunction with the British Psychological Society's Division of Occupational Psychology. We are currently undertaking the accreditation process.

Whether you're a recent bachelor graduate or a professional looking to develop and enhance skills, the course offers an excellent grounding in the key skills of an Occupational Psychologist. Furthermore, UWE Bristol stands out for its focus on applying skills and competencies to real-world scenarios. The department has excellent links with local organisations who provide connections and invaluable insights.

If you hold Graduate Basis for Chartership (GBC) with the BPS, the MSc provides Stage-1 training towards achieving Practitioner Occupational Psychologist status (we are currently undertaking the accreditation process). As well as covering the BPS core curriculum, you'll enjoy a particular emphasis on highly transferable practical, professional and employment-related skills and the opportunity to gain course credit through practical work in business and organisational settings.
