About

This newly re-shaped Occupational and Organisational Psychology course, offered by University of East London for psychology graduates, is distinctive in its applied approach to psychology and benefits from a strong professional emphasis. 

Overview

The BPS re-accredited the course in 2018 for the next five years and commended it for several aspects of good practice, including the availability of and support by staff, the mix of research active and practitioner focused teaching staff, and the theoretical and practical nature of the course, which is highly regarded by students.

 There is also invaluable input from experts in the fields of positive psychology, coaching and counselling, and past students offering insights into different applications of occupational psychology in practice.

We have deliberately steered away from more traditional assessment methods such as examinations, as these have little practical relevance to the kinds of challenges you will face as professionals.

Your future career

The practical emphasis of this course, balanced with a focus on developing critical thinking, means many of our students have progressed to highly successful careers.

Over the past five years, our students have gained employment as occupational psychologists, coaching psychologists, sports and performance psychologists, leadership development specialists, and human factors experts for a wide range of companies and organisations.

These include Google, Amazon, Vodafone, Deloittes, Emirates Airlines, Siemens, Royal Bank of Scotland, RAF, Ministry of Justice, Ministry of Defence and a number of occupational psychology practices including Saville Consulting, A&DC, Peoplewise and Genius Within.

The Occupational and Organisational Psychology course, offered by University of East London, also enables you to continue your studies by undertaking a professional doctorate in occupational psychology.

The strong professional emphasis, combined with a comprehensive skills curriculum, will develop your transferable skills and equip you with a competitive edge for the world of work.

As our range of internships attests, we have profitable links across some of the key areas of the industry, which is good news for our graduates.
