With a number of roles in vocational psychology now requiring doctorate training, there is a need for students to gain experience and knowledge in order to gain a place on the doctorate programmes.

This MSc Applications of Psychology course is ideal for those who are interested in vocational roles so as to be better equipped in order to compete for a place on those courses. It may also be of interest if you are eager to expand your knowledge of psychology further so as to be able to better understand psychology at work.

Students will be expected to demonstrate the capacity to formulate research questions, study designs, and ethical considerations, before then carrying out and reporting on their findings.
