This course is designed for those interested in developing skills and knowledge for the assessment and solution-focused management of people with certain physical and mental health conditions.
It will be of particular relevance to people with a background in the social sciences, mental health or nursing.
A background in psychology is desirable as you will have a strong foundation in mental health problems and research methods, but it is not essential.
It is also suitable for practitioners in health, mental health and the forensic equivalent (including all aspects of health and justice) who are currently working with people benefitting from such interventions. There is also clear potential for applicants to be multi-disciplinary and to come from public or private settings.
We offer flexible study modes and, after passing the relevant number of modules, you can choose to step off the programme to gain awards of PGCert and PGDip, or continue to the full MSc respectively.
You can study this course over three years and dedicate the third year to completing your dissertation.
