Postgraduate Studies in Psychology

We offer a diverse and exciting range of postgraduate opportunities for students.

Taught courses

Our Masters courses are designed to meet the needs of psychology graduates who wish to pursue a number of interests. Some of these programmes focus on training for further research, whilst others provide valuable experience for professional careers in psychology.

We cater for students from variety of backgrounds - whether you are from the UK or abroad, whether you are completing a psychology degree or studying another related discipline - there are options for you.

A limited number of prestige scholarships of up to £3000 are available to full-time students taking Masters courses in psychology.

Research Degrees

We provide high-quality supervision for students who wish to register for research degrees. We have an outstanding track record for nurturing research students towards successful and timely completion of their work.


As part of the North West Doctoral Training Centre, the largest centre in England for social science postgraduate training, we have several routes for funding, too. We very much welcome interest in ESRC case awards, where research councils combine with commercial, charity and other funding bodies to support students' research work. In addition, we offer studentships and research bursaries to complement external funding.
