What will I learn?

This four-year programme, accredited by the British Psychological Society, offers an extra year on top of the Psychology and Language Sciences BSc in which students have the opportunity to gain additional research experience in the final year, either with a UCL research group or in an applied setting.

Your learning

Your learning will involve attendance at lectures (sometimes shared with students on other programmes), smaller laboratory classes and back-up classes. Regular group tutorials with a member of academic staff will provide an opportunity to integrate learning and to discuss topics in more detail. Each student has regular meetings with a personal tutor to discuss academic progress.


Each module is examined separately, often by a combination of essays, data exercises and examinations and performance is always assessed in the same academic year in which you take it.


The cutting-edge experimental, empirical and statistical/computational tools employed in this degree will enable you to develop and evaluate ideas across the areas of human psychology and communication. They will provide you with an exceptional basis for further research in these areas.

Students will gain advanced training in qualitative and quantitative research methodologies. Additionally, graduates will have transferable skills in autonomy and responsibility, teamwork and presentation. This degree is an excellent foundation for further specialised training in careers such as audiology, clinical and educational psychology, teaching, and speech and language therapy.

The fourth MSci year will be of particular benefit to those students who wish to pursue a career in research (e.g. progressing to a PhD) or in clinical or educational work. Our aim is to help students to develop advanced interdisciplinary research and transferable skills valuable in a wide range of careers. Graduates from our programmes have gone on to further training in teaching, clinical psychology and medicine, to PhD study, as well as to careers in auditing and human resources.
