O que eu aprenderei?

Study psychology at postgraduate level and you become part of a diverse, dynamic and supportive community in which to research and learn. Forensic Psychology focuses on offending behaviour and court process issues, with specific areas of expertise including the treatment and rehabilitation of fire-setters, sexual harassment, and aggression and violence.

Overview

A PhD is a doctorate of philosophy based on mostly independent study. It is assessed formally on the basis of one piece of work, a dissertation (or thesis), that reports your original thought and research. You must also successfully complete all required training.

Choosing a topic

Although sometimes we have specific PhD research projects related to funding awards, most of our research students choose their own research topics. Once you have decided on the nature of your project, you should then contact the member of staff in the School whose expertise and interests most closely match your area of research and ask them if they will act as your supervisor.

You then work with your proposed supervisor on refining your research proposal which provides the starting point for your subsequent research.

Careers

Our postgraduate students commonly go into the fields of health, teaching or further education. For instance, many of our graduates take up roles as assistant psychologists in the NHS with a view to becoming a professional clinical or forensic psychologist. Upon completing our Master’s courses, graduates have also pursued doctoral study and academic careers at higher education institutions.

The programmes we offer help you to develop general critical, analytic and problem-solving skills that can be applied in a wide range of settings.
