Our Psychological Research Methods Masters degree provides extensive training if you are looking to develop a broad range of transferable skills relevant to independent research and beyond. The course has been designed specifically to prepare graduates in Psychology or related disciplines for:
– a PhD degree
– research related careers in academic or applied psychological disciplines
– careers in which data handling and analytical skills are of relevance.
You might also complete the course as a means of improving your research skills in preparation for further training as a professional psychologist (often as a clinical or educational psychologist).
Both awards are equivalent, although the MSc has a larger taught component whilst the MRes places greater emphasis on the conduct of independent research. You may wish to apply to the MSc in Psychological Research Methods in the first instance and then you can make a choice of award later, in conjunction with the Course Leader and teaching team.
