The Psychological Research programme offered by The University of Edinburgh will help you develop professional, critical and analytical skills. You will learn how to formulate research problems, and appreciate diverse approaches to research, including qualitative methods.
The programme is targeted at those with a special interest in research methods, but is also ideal for those wishing to take an empirical approach to areas of psychology that are not covered by our other taught programmes.
This programme has been designed to help you progress your research career and offers a firm basis for further postgraduate study, or for related research in industry.
