Physical Activity for Health (MRes)
"I have been extremely lucky to get a supervisor who has gone the extra mile to make me feel welcome into the Physical Activity for Health department. She has so much knowledge and experience with research and has reassured me and given me a sense of confidence in studying in a new area. The wider Strathclyde team that I have engaged with are also very welcoming, supportive and approachable."
Speech and Language Therapy (PhD)
"The University of Strathclyde’s School of Psychological Sciences and Health is one of the best schools with multidisciplinary research groups. Also, The University of Strathclyde is one of the oldest institutions in Glasgow and one of the leading universities in the UK."
Speech and Language Pathology (BSc)
"Along-side working in the hospital as an auxiliary, I was able to see the input of speech and language therapy and its benefit to patients, which sparked my interest. Also, my grandmother was diagnosed with motor neuron disease and it allowed me to see the impact speech and language pathology made on her quality of life, which improved vastly."
"When I was thinking about what to do at University I came across Speech and Language Therapy and decided that it was something I wanted to do because of my experience with my grandma. It also seemed like an ideal course for me because I am passionate about improving the quality of life of others and I loved biology at school. Luckily it was the best decision I’ve ever made- I love it!"
Clinical Health Psychology (MSc)
"Initially when I was narrowing down my options, choosing a course abroad was especially difficult for me. Interestingly, I found the perfect balance of health psychology, neuropsychology and clinical psychology all together. It was only when I came across this particular course that I knew what I wanted to do."
"I wanted to continue on my international journey and was keen to couple this with studying psychology. The structure of the course at Strathclyde made this stand out, along with the dissertation topic and the industry placement (this was the cherry on the cake for me!). Before committing, I explored the background of the professors, which I found fascinating, each researching their own fields."
"The teaching staff and international student support are the main forms of support that I have used throughout the course. You can get help from the faculty and student union very easily and quickly."
"The placement class offered a unique way to experience real work experience by encouraging reflection and critical thinking about the roles we had, in addition to building time into a busy semester and offering a different challenge. It’s helped me to identify and improve on my general and career-specific skills whilst providing insight into potential future challenges in this area of work."
Research Methods in Psychology (MSc)
"I think the Strathclyde psychology department boasts some of the most interesting, professional, supportive, passionate and dedicated staff I’ve ever worked with. Special shout out to my undergrad supervisor (Mark Elliot), MSc supervisor (Allan McGroarty, spelled it right) and Erasmus advisor (Kellyanne Findlay)."
"The opportunity to study Psychology at Strathclyde was an extra thrill. The Strathclyde psychology department is phenomenal, and they only get better and more of an asset to your university experience the further you progress through the course."
"The staff in the Psychology department are incredibly helpful, supportive, and encourage all students to make the most of their time at Strathclyde."
"With such a diverse range of research interests among the staff in the department, it feels like you have the freedom to pursue any field of research, no matter how obscure."
Clinical Health Psychology (MSc)
" The course is designed to promote academic as well as professional development of an individual. You get an opportunity to work in a professional environment which helps to learn how you can apply your theoretical knowledge in real world. "
"I was unsure of what course I wanted to do whilst I was at school, but I read about Psychology in Strathclyde’s prospectus and thought it sounded interesting. I noticed that the course was accredited by the British Psychological Society (BPS) and so I knew I could use my degree for further study when I graduated."
"It’s an amazing experience. The lecturers are very helpful, and the University is always looking for ways to improve the student experience. There’s a huge international community here with many active university societies, so you would be in for a good time beyond just studying."
"The future students will acquire the content and experience in the area of clinical and health psychology and will be supported to learn by the professional team."
