Sarah graduated in 2012 and went on to work as a clinical trial co-ordinator at the University of Nottingham.
I did a module in health psychology during my undergraduate degree in psychology and enjoyed it more than any other area (also I got my best ever mark in it too!) so I decided to do the MSc in Health Psychology
The course was very interesting and current, I felt it had the right amount of teaching and support without being as directive as an undergraduate degree - therefore this enabled us to have our own ideas and thoughts within a guiding framework. It was also well organised, the lectures and lecturers were interesting, inspiring and fun.
After I graduated, I began work as a clinical trial coordinator and follow up coordinator in the Division of Stroke at the University of Nottingham. It involves overseeing the set up, management and maintenance of a number of cutting edge trials in stroke medicine. It also involves patient contact as I complete a lot of the patient cognitive, mood and functioning tests following a patient’s participation in a trial.
I enjoyed the course hugely - I made lifelong friends and learnt a lot - and it has led me to a job in an area I am really interested in. If you want to do a MSc that is interesting, inspiring and useful for your future career than this is the one for you!
