Course content

The MSc Psychological Sciences is a conversion programme designed for students who have not previously taken a psychology degree or only psychology as a joint degree with other subjects. It is accredited by the British Psychological Society (BPS) and prepares students who wish to progress to research in psychology or study of applied areas of psychology such as clinical, educational, forensic and occupational/organisational/business psychology.

The Division of Psychology and Language Sciences undertakes world-leading research and teaching in mind, behaviour, and language.

Our work attracts staff and students from around the world. Together they create an outstanding and vibrant environment, taking advantage of cutting-edge resources such as a behavioural neuroscience laboratory, a centre for brain imaging, and extensive laboratories for research in speech and language, perception, and cognition.
