Educational Psychology


Educational psychologists deal with the psychological and educational development of people in the education system.

This may include students of any age, their parents or guardians and the people who work with them. Their work can involve both assessment and intervention within the education setting. They are also likely to be involved in training and research on related issues.

In order to become an educational psychologist a primary degree in psychology is required. You also need to complete a training course in educational psychology, preferably at Masters level. You can enhance your chances of achieving a place on such a programme by gaining a teacher qualification or teaching experience, or experience working with young people in an educational setting. Working with students with disabilities would also be helpful.

Courses are currently offered by:

  • Queen's University, Belfast
  • University College Dublin
