Course info

Summary

The Health Psychology MSc, accredited by the British Psychological Society, aims to equip students to apply the scientific and theoretical principles and ideas of health psychology using a scholarly and critical approach, and to develop the practical skills and knowledge required for employment or research in the field. The programme provides a thorough grounding in theories, concepts and empirical findings central to current health psychology. Students are encouraged to develop their own area of specialisation and are given formal training in quantitative and qualitative research methods. The programme is regularly reviewed by an advisory board including world-renowned experts in health psychology.

Careers

Many graduates of the programme continue to PhD-level study, or find work as researchers or in roles allied to psychology, healthcare services and delivery.

Employability

Given the academic nature of the programme, our students are advantaged when attempting to secure funded PhD studentships or clinical doctorates. As the focus of the MSc is on improving healthcare and delivery, students also take up positions within the public or private healthcare sector.

Accreditation

The MSc is stage 1 accredited by the British Psychological Society (BPS). BPS accreditation criteria stipulate a minimum 50% pass mark, with no condoned modules, and so students with final marks falling below 50% cannot graduate with the accredited MSc Health Psychology award. These students will instead graduate with an MSc Psychology & Health, if they have fulfilled UCL award requirements but not BPS award requirements.
