If you have an undergraduate degree in psychology, you can benefit from this flexible online Health Psychology Masters degree.

Our online MSc Health Psychology degree covers the theoretical and professional issues in health psychology and provides excellent preparation for many roles within the NHS. And since you’ll cover the latest research in this field and undertake your own research, it will also equip you to move onto a career in health psychology research or a PhD.

Tutors that are experts in practice and research

You'll be taught by our team of research active psychologists, who have expert knowledge of health psychology theory, practice and research. You won't just be looking at the theoretical side of health psychology therefore; you'll also be exploring the issues faced by today's health psychology professionals. Their comprehensive knowledge and professional experience will really help you learn. And their strong research profile means that you'll be part of a vibrant department at the forefront of developments in health psychology.

Flexible study to fit around your lifestyle

Studying online gives you the flexibility to study at the most convenient time and place for you. Course modules still operate within a fixed semester but you can choose to study during the day, in the evenings or at the weekend rather than having to attend fixed lectures. If you are employed full time or bringing up a family, this flexibility is invaluable.

Is the programme BPS accredited?

We will be resubmitting an application for accreditation for our psychology programmes to the British Psychological Society (BPS) in early 2017. Until we have successfully concluded this process we are unable to state that our programmes are BPS accredited. The BPS expects to make a decision regarding accreditation by 1 April 2017. BPS accreditation remains in place for programmes that commenced prior to September 2016 and for all campus-based psychology programmes.
