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 is recognised by both past and present students as a friendly place that has the interests of its students at its heart.
