This is an online course that is delivered through Blackboard, our virtual learning environment. You do not need to come onto campus in order to study this course, although students are always welcome to attend campus to make use of facilities such as the library or attend events.
If studying part-time this is equivalent to approximately one day a week, which you can spread out over the whole week at a pace to suit you.
Lecture material will be provided through audio PowerPoint presentations and seminar activities will be facilitated by an online discussion board. You will also interact with staff and other MSc students via Skype and have tutorials using Skype, email or telephone.
Assessment on this course is 100% coursework.
All of our teaching team are research active and the profile of health psychology related research at Aston and our links with practice in the NHS makes us particularly distinctive.
