In the Words of Our Students…
“The UWL MSc in clinical and health psychology is quite challenging, but I am happy that it’s whipping me into shape for my desired career in psychotherapy and teaching. The fascinating coursework and the highly experienced and knowledgeable psychologists who are teaching us are expertly moulding us into future psychologists.
I did my BSc in psychology at ANC as well, and the transition into this graduate degree was smooth and simple.
That aside, this course is great for people from other disciplines too, and right now we have doctors, speech therapists, and many others from various walks of life working on developing their skills. It also affords you excellent training in conducting real-life research from start to finish, which I find to be fun and fulfilling.”
