MPhil and PhD

You can study either an MPhil or a PhD within any of our research areas:

  • Cognition
  • Health Psychology & Behavioural Medicine
  • Development & Educational Psychology

As part of your MPhil or PhD, you'll be enrolled on the Postgraduate Certificate in Researcher Professional Development (PgCert RDP) for which you'll have to complete a range of personal, professional and career development activities.

These activities aim to develop the transferable skills you'll use throughout your career and also within a particular researcher development framework.


Our DEdPsy degree is specific to Educational Psychology.

Our PgCert RPD programme aims to ensure you get the most out of your current research activities at Strathclyde and helps you prepare for your future career as a researcher.

We'll help you recognise and develop your transferrable skills that'll have a positive impact on your research, now and in the future.


The University Careers Service can help you with everything from writing your CV to interview preparation.
