The Doctor of Philosophy in Psychology and Health (PhD) programme is a four year (full-time) postgraduate research degree that combines a PhD thesis with the taught academic components of the existing MSc in Health Psychology programme and a range of transferable skills. This full-time PhD programme subscribes to the scientist-practitioner model, and provides students with integrated training in the academic and research aspects of Psychology and Health as well as providing students with a broad range of transferable skills.
Students will be selected by a Course Committee comprising the course Director(s), prospective research supervisor(s) and Head of School of Psychology. Entrants will be expected to have no less than an upper second class honours degree in psychology or a discipline related to health psychology. If students do not have this basic qualification they must have demonstrated high ability by some other means (e.g. through publications or achievement in a higher degree). Candidates should be proficient in the use of the English language. An interview process will form part of the selection procedure and these will take place the end of June/early July.
