The Masters in Science (MSc) develops skills in conducting health service research.
This programme provides practical skills and understanding in assessment and intervention of mental health difficulties in a variety of clinical populations.
Successful applicants are required to pay only 20 per cent of actual fees if Department of Health bursary funding is available.
Whilst undertaking and graduating from the programme does not confer the threshold entry award for autonomous professional practice in clinical psychology, it does promote and quality-assure the knowledge and skills required to provide low-intensity psychological interventions, and provide excellent preparatory training for the Doctorate in Clinical Psychology programmes.
