About MSci Psychology

This MSci course is designed for students considering a career in psychology. You will take the same modules as the BSc Psychology course followed by an additional, specialist fourth year.

Our psychology degrees are recognised by the British Psychological Society as qualification for graduate registration and our courses are specifically designed to meet its requirements.

In the first year you will study psychology, research methods (laboratory classes and statistics) and an open unit in another school.

In the second year you will focus on research methods and units in the psychology core curriculum.

The third year of the degree is entirely option-based, allowing you to choose from a range of lecture and seminar units that you will undertake together with a research project.

In the final year you will gain hands-on experience in research through an independent research project supervised by our academic and research staff. You will also choose taught modules from a list of units that includes training in psychology research methods, a research apprenticeship option and master's-level lecture courses.

BSc students may transfer to this course subject to satisfactory performance and availability of places.
