Health psychology applies the theories, methods and techniques of psychology to issues of health and illness. These are integrated into the psychological processes related to the maintenance of health, the promotion of the psychological wellbeing of the physically ill, and the normal and pathological responses to ill health and stress.

You will consider the psychological and physiological responses of the individual to ill health, as well as the social and community contexts of health-related behaviours and the systems for healthcare.

You will be equipped with a sound knowledge of theories and practical issues relevant to health psychology and also a good understanding of both quantitative and qualitative approaches to research. The programme, which is accredited by the British Psychological Society (BPS), provides the academic component (Stage 1) on the route towards becoming a Chartered Health Psychologist.
