I studied at the University of Sheffield for my BSc in Psychology and fell in love with the city. I chose the MSc in Psychological Research Methods with Advanced Statistics as I knew the department well and wanted to prepare myself the best I could for eventually applying for the DClinPsy.
Without my MSc I wouldn’t have qualified for the job, it gave me the knowledge and skills I needed to continue a career in research
MSc Psychological Research Methods with Advanced Statistics
I was lucky enough to have a fabulous supervisor that gave me great opportunities for research in depression and anxiety which is a keen interest of mine! From the MSc I now have two published papers from the systematic review module and my research project is currently under review for publication.
I am now a Clinical Studies Officer in the NHS. I work on various research projects for the NIHR in mental health and dementia - this involves me promoting research within clinical teams; conducting neuropsychological assessments on clinical trials and visiting individuals with severe mental illness on inpatient wards or at home to complete research questionnaires.
Without my MSc I wouldn’t have qualified for the job, it gave me the knowledge and skills I needed to continue a career in research. I intend on applying for the DClinPsy in the near future.
