Course content

The MSc in Psychology (Conversion) is for people who have degrees in other subjects (or unaccredited psychology degrees) who wish to obtain Graduate Basis for Chartered Membership (GBC) with the British Psychological Society (BPS).

Teaching on this MSc is course-specific, with classes designed and delivered exclusively for conversion Master’s students, rather than shared with undergraduate courses. All classes are held on one day per week, maximising flexibility for working on assignments, and to help maintain your other commitments.

The Department of Psychology at Chester has a well-established record of producing high-calibre students. It is equipped with a wide range of psychological equipment for your use. The Department is recognised by both past and present students as a friendly place that has the interests of its students at its heart.

Modules are delivered through seminars, lectures, laboratory classes, group work and one-to-one sessions. Teaching takes place in lecture theatres and laboratories over six hours per week (with an expected 18-24 hours’ independent study per week).

Assessment is by coursework, including: essays, research reports, a presentation, posters, a class test, a critique and a dissertation.
