I chose to study at the University of Bradford as it has an excellent reputation for its diversity and for its ability to engage students in the world of employment right from the start. I specifically chose to do a MSc in Psychology as it provided me with the accredited BPS qualification that is required by many doctorate programmes.
Learning and assessment
Teaching on the programme includes lectures, small group seminars, workshops and laboratory-based practicals.
You will explore theories in current debates, and develop experience and confidence to make a considered contribution to an argument. Throughout the programme you will acquire skills in knowledge acquisition, presentation, discussion and debate that will be useful in your future career progression.
Assessment will usually focus on written expression of your skills through essays, examinations or journal writing. You will also develop skills in presenting research findings and in the production of laboratory reports.
The Psychology Master Dissertation gives you the opportunity to carry out an empirical piece of research investigating one area in depth, using the skills developed during the programme. This study will help to further develop your ability to work independently and rigorously, whilst benefiting from the support of a member of staff with experience in a similar area.
