This Masters introduces you to the main methods of measuring perception and encourages you to consider their strengths and weaknesses. You’ll receive broad training in psychological methods, as well as developing an understanding of perceptual experience and the basic framework for measuring perceptually guided actions in a bias-free way. You’ll also gain practical experience in measuring perception and action through a research project and the opportunity of a placement in a laboratory setting. You’ll be based in a dedicated MSc office, or within an appropriate research group, and allocated a peer mentor. You’ll also have an academic supervisor in psychology who supports and guides your development, including the research dissertation project. We’re here to encourage you to make the transition to become a fully independent research scientist.
