What our students say


Completing the Psychology Research Methods MSc was one of the most challenging yet rewarding periods of my education so far. This masters fully equipped me with a variety of research skills; many of which I now practically apply within my PhD.

Alongside this, choosing to study at Nottingham has allowed me to join an extremely active, successful, inviting and engaging research community. Overall, no regrets!
