  • Research project options and supervisor requirements are available in the PDF below. 
  • We will try and place you with a supervisor in the area of your preferred choice, however we cannot guarantee this. 
  • Unless otherwise mentioned, the Clinical Psychology staff are not available for supervision in the general honours programme.
  • If we can’t place you with one of your supervision choices we will undertake to allocate a supervisor and a project to you. Alternatively, you may wish to switch to the Postgraduate Diploma in Science (PGDipSci), which does not involve a dissertation.

Note: You should understand that, in order to gain maximum benefit from the dissertation, you must work within the supervisor’s area of expertise, and the supervisor has the right to assign a particular project, although there may be some room for negotiation. The dissertation should be seen as a research apprenticeship rather than a project of your own choice. As part of the application process, please approach lecturers in the department in your field of interest to discuss potential dissertation topics.


List up to five potential supervisors for your research dissertation component:
