Building on the strong research profile of the Department, the MSc course is designed to be an introduction to current research and are suitable both as a preparation for continued PhD studies, or for anyone wishing to broaden and deepen their skills and knowledge in these fields.
Since 2008, the Psychology Department has offered a one-year Masters' course - MSc Applied Social Psychology.
The Department of Psychology at Royal Holloway, University of London, provides an ideal setting for this course. The Department is a leading centre for psychological research in the UK and internationally (ranked joint 7th in the UK in the most recent Research Assessment Exercise, RAE 2008) and is widely recognised both for the quality of its teaching and state-of-the-art research facilities, which include an on-site research-dedicated MRI scanner, an infant research laboratory, and several systems for eye movement recording. Our faculty research staff and students come from a wide international base. The department has a vibrant research culture, and students are encouraged to participate fully in the department's academic life. The leafy and beautiful campus is located in the Green Belt close to WIndsor Great Park, yet only 40 minutes from central London by train.
