Together they create an outstanding and vibrant environment, taking advantage of cutting-edge resources such as a behavioural neuroscience laboratory, a centre for brain imaging, and extensive laboratories for research in speech and language, perception, and cognition. Opportunities for graduate students to work with world-renowned researchers exist in all areas of investigation, from basic processes to applied research. The division offers a supportive environment including numerous specialist seminars, workshops, and guest lectures. Your future career Typically, students are interested in pursuing a research career (for example, working as a research fellow, undertaking a PhD) or pursuing a clinical career (for example, applying for Clinical Psychology or Child Psychotherapy training). This is a new programme and as such there are limited statistics on career progression of graduates. At this time approximately half of students progress to further research, either as research assistants or to PhD programmes. The remainder either pursue further clinical training or work. A minority decide to pursue a career outside psychology. Entry Requirements Normally a minimum of an upper second-class Bachelor's degree from a UK university or an overseas qualification of an equivalent standard.
