Course content

This course is now closed for 2019 entry for international applicants.

The MSc/PGDip Psychology (Conversion) is a postgraduate conversion course for students who wish to pursue an academic or professional career in psychology but either do not have a first degree in psychology, or do not have eligibility for Graduate Basis for Chartered Membership (GBC) from the British Psychological Society.

Students attend a selection of modules to cover the British Psychological Society core areas, and a limited number of more specialised elective modules. These modules are all lecture-based; dedicated seminars are also provided for each core module. Assessment is by written examination at the end of each semester, by practical and research project reports, and written assessments.
