The MRes in Art Psychotherapy allows qualified and experienced art therapists to explore clinical practice through critical examination of theory, to gain a wide knowledge of research methods and evidence-based practice, and to develop research skills.

It has been designed to equip you to undertake research and to contribute to the evidence base and the discipline and its practices.

Successful completion of the programme enables you to undertake research in art psychotherapy and/or to proceed to a higher degree. It has been structured to meet the needs of working professionals, with flexibility and independent study built in to the programme.

The taught modules address the qualitative and quantitative research methodologies in the context of evidence-based practice and as a means through which the clinical, contextual and visual considerations within art psychotherapy can be investigated.


Case study; essays; research-based dissertation.



By the end of the programme you'll be able to:

* identify issues of clinical, cultural, visual and contextual significance in Art Psychotherapy
* review clinical practice through an in-depth knowledge and critical appraisal of Art Therapy and related literature
* demonstrate knowledge of quantitative and qualitative research methods and their practical application to Art Psychotherapy
* identify and implement evidence-based practice in Art Psychotherapy
* show development as a reflexive practitioner able to appraise your work as a clinician and researcher, each in terms of the other


The programme is suitable for applicants who are interested in progressing to doctoral studies and/or applied research in art psychotherapy and related fields. It's also designed for therapists who are interested in career development, and within the Agenda for Change framework.

Our graduates are invariably seen as offering a valuable and unique service to their clients and to the multidisciplinary teams in which they work. We regularly receive positive feedback from organisations that employ art therapists and/or accept trainees on placement.


You should normally have a Postgraduate Diploma or MA in Art Therapy, and at least two years full-time experience working as an art therapist or in a post where art therapy plays a major part.

English Language Requirements

IELTS band: 7

IMPORTANT NOTE: Per 6 April 2015 only the English language tests from IELTS and Trinity College London are accepted for Tier 4 Visa applications to the United Kingdom. Other tests (including TOEFL, TOEIC, Pearson, City & Guilds) are no longer accepted for Tier 4 visa applications to the United Kingdom. The university might still accept these tests to admit you to the university, but if you require a Tier 4 visa to enter the UK and begin your degree programme, these tests will not be sufficient to obtain your Visa. Since the Trinity College London language tests must be taken in one of their exam centres in the UK, IELTS is now the only language test accepted for Tier 4 visas to the UK that can be taken worldwide.

The IELTS test is most widely accepted by universities and is also accepted for Tier 4 visas to the UK- learn more.
