Content

Each student will select a research topic which will be supervised by staff (and possibly co-supervised by a practitioner). Initially each student will complete a 9000 word introduction to the proposal and hypotheses. Students must also present the proposal to a meeting of students and staff to obtain feedback before commencing data collection. Whilst primary responsibility for generating a topic lies with the student, the project may arise out of discussions with staff members or others. The topic must be within the area of clinical, health or forensic psychology and be deemed appropriate and viable. All projects must receive ethics approval before data collection commences and must include an empirical component. Ethics applications must be submitted by the end of November in the first year of enrolment.

Assessment

Introduction (9000 word hurdle requirement: must be at least Distinction level), presentation of colloquium (hurdle requirement), submission of ethics application (hurdle requirement)
