Why study with us

Our MSc courses can be completed over one year full-time or two years part time, and include plenty of hands-on research experience.  


You can complement your study through placements with internal and external providers, including our four in-house clinics (Clinical Research Unit for Anxiety and Depression in Children and Young People, the Berkshire Memory and Cognition Research Centre, the Centre for Autism, and the Charlie Waller Institute for Evidence-Based Psychological Treatment).

Our programmes have a long-standing reputation for preparing students to take on academic, clinical and research careers, as well as non-psychology careers.

Research Training

Our multidisciplinary research environment provides students with excellent research training through our Centre for Integrative Neuroscience and Neurodynamics, which gives them access to state-of-the art technology and expertise in cognitive and computational neuroscience.

The centre sits alongside facilities for experimental and observational research, including a number of specialist laboratories (e.g. virtual reality, ageing, infant vision, infant language, auditory perception, body kinematics, psychophysiology, TMS, EEG).
