MSc Psychological Research Methods with Data Science



The University of Sheffield, UK is inviting applications for its MSc Psychological Research Methods with Data Science course starting in September 2022.

Bringing together practical training in the latest research techniques with computational data analysis classes, this course has been developed to enable psychology students to make the transition to becoming data scientists.

The course will train you in the most commonly applied quantitative methods including multilevel modelling, factor analysis, and structural equation modelling, as well as the skills of when to apply such techniques and how to interpret the output.

It will teach you the skills you need and give you the opportunities to apply them to the area of psychology that you’re interested in: from cognitive and developmental, to social and clinical psychology.

Alongside your data science training you’ll learn a broad range of research techniques from neuroimaging (EEG, fMRI), behavioural genetics, through experimental methodologies and clinical trial design, to qualitative interview, diary study methodologies and specialist methods for working with infants, children and clinical populations.


Eligibility – Holders of a three-year/ four year bachelor’s degree with a minimum of 60% or “first class” from a recognised university, or equivalent, in psychology or a related discipline.

Evidence of undergraduate training in statistics for psychology is also required.

Fee- Overseas (2022 annual fee) : £26,200
