This BPS accredited programme is especially suitable for students with an undergraduate degree in Psychology wishing to develop a career as an Occupational Psychologist.
It is also suitable for those wishing to apply their knowledge of psychology in personnel functions, human resource management roles or as business consultants in areas such as selection and assessment, organisational development and change and employee development.
Our MSc in Work Psychology is accredited by the British Psychological Society (BPS). Completion of the programme fulfils the requirements of the Stage 1 qualification for those wishing to go on to eventually become a HCPC-registered Occupational Psychologist.
Students are given in-depth training by experienced researchers and practitioners to equip them to understand and analyse a wide range of psychological theories that can be applied in organisational settings. This is integrated with practical training on how to apply theory to influence important business decisions. There is a strong emphasis on developing critical thinking and consultancy skills as well as the ability to work effectively with a wide range of organisational stakeholders. Students extend and cement their practical skills by completing a research project that allows them to apply their knowledge to an organisational issue.
