Course content

Occupational Psychology MSc and Business Psychology MSc are two contemporary and original postgraduate qualifications that apply psychology to business and organisational environments.

The MSc Occupational Psychology is an innovative qualification informed by research at the forefront of both the academic discipline and professional practice. It is open to those students who hold a psychology degree with a Graduate Basis for Chartership (GBC) and is ideal for students wanting to take post-graduate training in order to become Registered Occupational Psychologists.

The MSc Business Psychology is open to students with a non-BPS accredited psychology degree or non-psychology related degree. This offers opportunities for Business Psychologists, personnel managers, human resource managers and managers to engage with the major theories and models of business and occupational psychology taught by experts which can be implemented within their workplace.

The BPS accreditation only applies to MSc Occupational Psychology and not to the MSc Business Psychology.
