Profile Description

Overview

The MPhil and PhD programmes in Psychology covers four broad research areas:applied cognition and technology; health psychology; social processes; and Clinical Psychology/Psychopathology. Students are expected to carry out supervised research at the leading edge of their chosen subject in just one of these areas (some students combine two areas) - for further details see the section "Our Research". The research must be written up as a substantial thesis. The transfer from MPhil to PhD is subject to students passing an assessment process, which normally involves submission of written work and a transfer seminar. The final stage of the PhD degree is the oral, or viva voce, examination in which students are required to defend their thesis to a Board of Examiners.
