The Psychology programme at The University of Edinburgh is intended for those who already have a strong background in psychology and strong research skills, typically from undergraduate study.
- The main part of the programme involves writing a dissertation in collaboration with a supervisor. It is recommended that candidates have a clear idea of their preferred research topic and have identified one or two possible supervisors before applying. You may already contact your preferred supervisor(s) and discuss the proposed research with them.
- Once enrolled, the supervisor(s) will support you in developing the topic during and carry out the research. You can be embedded within supervisors’ research groups, working alongside other postgraduate students.
- You are advised to take one or two taught courses (further courses may also be attended, but not for credit), which are offered from the wide range of topics taught at the Masters level within Psychology.
