Cardiff University

The main objective of the degree course is to promote knowledge and understanding of psychology in medicine at both conceptual and practical levels. You will be encouraged to evaluate critically the theory and methodology of a variety of psychological subject areas and make the link between basic psychological processes and psychiatric and neurological symptoms and conditions.

This will be achieved through the combination of the content in our route’s core module and the modules from the School of Psychology that will be made available to students. Hands-on research experience will be obtained by conducting a project, which will be supervised by an established scientist.
