Months of entry
This course is for university graduates who wish to pursue a professional career or postgraduate study in psychology but who do not hold an Honours Degree in psychology.
The MSc Psychology is a conversion programme that enables you to achieve Graduate Basis for Chartership (GBC) with the British Psychological Society (BPS). GBC is a necessary first step towards a career in one of the professional branches of psychology.
The MSc Psychology aims to convert graduates from other disciplines and those with unrecognised psychology degrees into GBC recognised Psychology graduates. It hopes to recruit from those students who wish to obtain a GBC recognised qualification, which will enable them to progress into a career in psychology. Hence it hopes to attract those who wish to further their interest in psychology along with those that wish to change their career path to a specific area in psychology. The course allows graduates to apply for a large range of professional training in psychology for example, clinical, occupational, educational, forensic, and counselling psychology.
You’ll examine all the core areas in Psychology, as required by the British Psychological Society and develop masters level skills and knowledge in Psychology.
