The MSc Applied Positive Psychology and Coaching Psychology, one of the only courses of its kind in the world, fully integrates positive psychology and coaching psychology to create an innovative training programme for those promoting wellbeing.

The result is a course designed to empower students to truly make a positive difference in the world. This course is accredited as Master Practitioner by the European Mentoring and Coaching Council (EMCC).

What You'll Learn

Positive psychology (PP) has been defined as “the science and practice of improving wellbeing”. The field encompasses many different topics, including happiness, positive emotions, resilience, hope, strengths, flourishing and psychological development. The practice of Coaching Psychology may be described as a process for enhancing wellbeing and performance in personal life, educational and work domains. It is underpinned by models of coaching grounded in established adult and child learning theories or psychological theories and approaches.

Your Future Career

When you graduate from this course you will operate as a more flexible consultant or practitioner in a rapidly developing and increasingly sought-after field. You will be well versed in relevant scientific literature, with the confidence to apply it in your professional practice. This may involve working with individuals on a one-to-one basis through Positive Psychology or Executive Coaching or working at organisational level using positive organisational scholarship. There is a significant demand for the skills that this integrated course develops.

In designing the programme we consulted with employers in the field, industry specialists, academics in other institutions and professional bodies. Our accreditation with the EMCC reflects the professional character and the quality of the training.
