Course Summary

This course offers an advanced grounding in the psychology of adult mental health and is designed to provide knowledge and experience relevant to a career as a mental health practitioner. The course paves the way to train as a chartered health psychologist, but it is important to note that it does not confer a licence to practise. You will strengthen your research skills and learn what is required to practise professionally. Students gain an understanding of the backdrop of current thinking on the nature of mental health, its psychological and neurological causation, and the best evidence-based interventions. You will learn how to apply this knowledge to treat a variety of mental health problems. The teaching staff bring a depth of experience to this course which our students have always valued. The programme is enriched by our close working relationships with the Hull Clinical Psychology Training Programme, and with local health and social care services. An increasing awareness of mental health issues has created a growing and substantial need, both locally and nationally, for more mental health practitioners which this MSc programme has been designed to help meet.

Future prospects: This course has been built from the ground up to enhance students’ progress to becoming chartered psychologists. Students are taught the core competencies required for a career in mental health. Undertaking this MSc can facilitate a subsequent application for a clinical psychology training place. It also increases students skills and experience relevant to other careers in health and social care; The programme has been designed to help redress the relative lack of psychological input and services in the region, and to help tackle issues of deprivation and inequality by providing MSc graduates with the skills and knowledge to contribute to a wide variety of health and social care services.

Entry requirements

Students should have, or expect to obtain, a 2:2 Honours degree (or international equivalent) in psychology or a closely allied discipline. They should also have a minimum of 30 hours of paid or voluntary work experience relevant to the content of the programme. Students hoping to use the degree to support a future application to Clinical Psychology Training should note that such training courses generally require a 2:1 Honours British Psychological Society accredited degree and this MSc degree will not necessarily compensate for that requirement.
