Coaching psychology is a thriving area of applied psychology. This Business Psychology with Coaching programme is accredited by International Coach Federation and combines Heriot-Watt University's MSc in Business Psychology, the most established in Europe, with the study of professional coaching.


Coaching psychology is a thriving area of applied psychology which deals with professional and personal issues in a practical way.

There is a growing demand for experts in evidence-based coaching who can offer effective non-clinical interventions to help individuals and teams by increasing productivity, managing talent and dealing with conflict, stress and change.
