Subject overview Psychology staff in the School of Health and Social Sciences value their relationships with students, and provide friendly and supportive postgraduate research supervision. The MPhil course is followed mainly by supervised independent study. You will produce a thesis under the supervision of a member of staff with expertise in the area chosen (the Director of Studies). Additional support is available from other internal/external academics. A programme of related studies that may involve formal taught courses is agreed with the director of studies each year. The broad topic to be investigated is usually determined by you, with more specific details being determined via discussions with the Director of Studies. At the start of the course you will be expected to broaden your research training by participation in sessions on the MSc Psychology ‘Advanced Methods’ module (this does not incur any extra tuition fees). Throughout your period of study, you will be encouraged to present your work to internal audiences via a school seminar series. If you continue your studies to PhD level you will be encouraged to present your work to external academic audiences at relevant conferences and to submit papers to academic journals.
