Entry requirements

For MSc entry, a good relevant Honours degree (first or second class) or equivalent overseas qualifications will be considered. Given the clear practical element of the programmes, we will also consider non-graduate candidates holding less than a good Honours degree, or its equivalent, but with compensating qualifications or experience may be admitted to the Postgraduate Diploma programme. Transfer to the MSc will be possible later on if exams and course work are at MSc level.

Business psychologists may be employed in-house or as consultants to advise on issues relating to workforce performance and employee behaviour. In addition, a deeper understanding of people’s behaviour in the workplace is an important skill for managers in any industry. This degree therefore directly enhances the potential of graduates pursuing careers in management, training and human capital roles as well as in the fast-growing field of business psychology itself. The knowledge can equally be applied to any role in which employee or client relations are important for success.
