Months of entry
The MSc and PG Diploma in Psychology offer a fast-track route to eligibility for Graduate Basis for Chartered Membership with the British Psychological Society, provided a minimum standard of 50% is achieved.
This means that applicants will normally already have studied some psychology at undergraduate level in a previous degree programme and now wish to undertake further study in order to allow the opportunity for specialisation in psychology in the future.
This is therefore the first step towards further postgraduate training for those wanting to pursue a professional career in Psychology.
You will be given the opportunity to engage in practical work and will use the extensive psychological laboratory provision in the Centre for Psychology Studies. You will also be given the opportunity to engage in advanced theoretical debates relevant to the understanding of contemporary issues in society.
The programme is accredited as conferring eligibility for the Graduate Basis for Chartered Membership with the British Psychological Society provided an average of 50% is achieved.
These are 'conversion awards' for those who need Graduate Basis for Chartered Membership with the British Psychological Society.
