This course, established in 1995, was one of the first Masters in Health Psychology, and has been accredited by the British Psychological Society (BPS) since 1999. It includes an innovative portfolio of assessments – which have been consistently praised by external examiners – geared to developing your transferable skills, and relating directly to the world of work. Our assessments include critical reviews, grant application preparation tasks, presenting your work in an end of module conference, designing and implementing a behaviourchange intervention, and writing your research project as a short paper suitable for submission to a peer review journal.
Successful completion of the course (Stage 1) is a prerequisite for the further training (Stage 2) you will need to be able to register with the Health Professions Council (HPC) as a Health Psychologist. The course is taught by a core team of research-active staff, with collaborative links to external institutions in London and beyond.
