Career prospects

Our highly productive, long-established partnerships with NHS services provide excellent opportunities for postgraduate students to develop their clinical experience and research expertise.

This can be in unique settings, such as the psychology service we run with the NHS for cancer patients. It's the only service of its kind in the country.

People undertake research degrees  with us at different stages in their careers and for different reasons. On graduating some go into teaching or further research, whilst others continue in clinical fields.

Because of the quality and extent of our research we can offer you good opportunities to be published. This will improve your career potential and will certainly raise your profile.

Depending on your existing qualifications, undertaking a research degree with us may fulfill some of the requirements for gaining Chartered Psychologist status. Please see for more information.

And finally, we're an excellent option for medical students wishing to pursue intercalated MPHil degrees as a way of expanding their patient understanding and clinician's skills.
