    Course Structure

    The MSc in Occupational Health Psychology by e-Learning is delivered on a part-time basis over two to three years.

    The course consists of ten e-learning modules (100 credits), two taught modules (20 credits) and two dissertation modules (60 credits). Therefore, the MSc requires the successful completion of 180 credits.

    The course operates within a Virtual Learning Environment (VLE) where you can access lectures, support and assessment materials. The VLE offers a virtual common room for discussion groups and tutorials, ensuring all students feel part of an online community of learners that engages frequently and constructively.

    Although the course is delivered via the Internet, you will have to travel to Nottingham at the beginning of the course for an Induction Week and in your second year of study. These face-to-face course components will allow students to:
    be introduced to the course team, the course’s VLE and course requirements
    attend two modules – one introductory to occupational health psychology and one on risk assessment for work stress that are run as intensive two-day workshops
    sit the course’s two written examinations
    have supervision meetings with your dissertation supervisor.
    Modules use virtual discussion groups and tutorials, self-directed study, self-managed learning group tasks, and coursework. Most key references and links to useful websites are available through the course’s VLE. There are online and telephone tutorials as appropriate.

    We also offer a Postgraduate Diploma in Occupational Health Psychology by e-learning, which mirrors the taught component of the MSc but does not include the two Dissertation modules.

    It is possible to register for the Postgraduate Diploma in Occupational Health Psychology by e-learning and transfer on to this MSc course at a later date.

    You may also be interested in the MSc or Postgraduate Diploma in Occupational Health Psychology, both of which are taught at the University.
