The Psychology programme offered at the Bangor University can also consider self-funded applicants who are already in possession of a masters level qualification (or practical work-based experience) and who have a suitable background in research methods.
You may have a specific research aim in mind and will be ready to carry out independent research leading to PhD level study or be seeking a stand-alone research based qualification suitable for a career in research with transferable skills for graduate employment.
It is the normal expectation that the independent research (120 credits) should be of at a publishable standard in a high quality peer reviewed journal and you will receive support from your supervisors to support you in that aim.
If you are considering this option you are strongly encouraged to get in touch with potential supervisor in the school prior to making an application to discuss your area of interest.
The School’s Psychology masters degrees cover a number of specialist areas that reflect the mix of research expertise within the department.
The course is primarily designed for students who wish to pursue a career in academic research or who wish to deepen their expertise and professional understanding in a particular discipline. Although KESS funded students can apply to upgrade their MRes Scholarship to a PhD scholarship this route not the ESRC accredited route to PhD study. Those interested in pursuing a PhD are strongly advised to consider the ESRC accredited MSc Psychology Research.
