Course content

Eager to switch career paths? Interested in the secrets of the human brain and behaviour? Want to take your first step towards becoming a psychologist? Our MSc Psychology Conversion provides graduates in disciplines other than psychology the opportunity to obtain the Graduate Basis for Chartered Membership (GBC) with the British Psychological Society (BPS).

GBC allows you to pursue postgraduate training in applied areas of psychology associated with the Societies’ Divisions (such as educational and clinical psychology). It’s the first step toward gaining status as a chartered psychologist.

You’ll study different areas of psychology, including biological, cognitive, social and developmental psychology. We’ll also look at personality and individual differences in the study of human behaviour. As well as focusing on these five interrelated areas, you’ll develop and advance your knowledge of psychological research methods and data analysis.

Outside the lecture theatre, look out for exciting opportunities to work with our experts on their latest research projects. Your psychology degree will be taught by experts who are carrying out world-leading research in their field.

Our student-led psychology society brings together people who share a love for the subject. Attend their social events, benefit from peer mentoring and networking opportunities, and hear from unique speakers from across the UK.
