Course Summary

Course Summary

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.

This course is available in the following three options:

Full-time on-campus (12 months)
Full-time distance learning (12 months)
Part-time distance learning (24 months)

There is a growing recognition within the world’s coaching and positive psychology community that such integration is an important step forward, providing clients with a more open-minded approach to their mental health. From the point of view of positive psychology, the course will have a strong foundation in cutting-edge theory and research relating to wellbeing. The coaching element will feature advanced training in working with clients and groups in professional capacities.

Our aim is to equip students with the knowledge, skills, and confidence to be able to help people and organisations to flourish. It combines the study of cutting-edge empirical research and theory on wellbeing with the practical skills and competencies you need to apply this expertise in the real world. The result is a course designed to empower students to truly make a positive difference in the world.

Our course is accredited at Master Practitioner level by the European Mentoring and Coaching Council (EMCC). After graduating you will be able to apply for the Foundation, Practitioner, Senior Practitioner and, eventually, Master Practitioner level according to your level of experience.


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. The field of Coaching, for instance, is growing dramatically judging by the amount of research output and the degree of recognition it is now receiving from employers as well as educational and governmental institutions.
