We do not know what impact the coronavirus pandemic will have on next year’s timetable. Currently, we are working online.

It is likely that we will start term online and then transition to in-person teaching.
You can find the timetable for the next academic year here when it becomes available. Traditionally this is late summer.
Traditionally, the Thursday before the first day of term is a general orientation day for all new postgraduate students in the School of. Applied Psychology. We expect that this will go ahead this year.

This year applicants in Round 4 were competing for only a few places. There were sufficient places for all those who were found suitable in Rounds 1, 2 and 3. In Round 1 all twenty-four places will be available again. If you were placed on a waiting list, then we found you suitable for the course, but there just were not enough places. The probability of you been offered a place in Round 1 would be high.
Remember, coaching is the art of the possible – so make contact and let’s see if we can come up with a solution.
