MSc Health Psychology


I completed the BSc Psychology at Stirling and loved it so much that I didn't want to leave!  The MSc Health Psychology here has an outstanding reputation, so I knew it was the right course for me.  The teaching staff are all extremely encouraging and engaging. Every lecture, seminar, and the class was made interactive while allowing us to learn key skills. Their passion definitely transfers across to the students. I loved that the lectures were so varied and covered a wide range of areas within health psychology.

One of the attractions of the MSc Health Psychology for me was the placement opportunity, which allowed me to apply my knowledge in a real working environment within the NHS.  I would advise prospective students to make the most of every opportunity the course provides. The course allows you to learn so many important transferable skills that are beneficial for any future career.

The assignments on the programme have taught me the key skills necessary to progress to Stage 2 training, a career in research, or any health-related job opportunity, and I am hoping to continue my career in health psychology.

I can't recommend the course highly enough.
