Course content

Looking for a change in direction? Already have a non-psychology degree? Want to study psychology without having to do a three-year traditional undergraduate degree again? This programme could be the answer.

This programme has been designed for those who hold an undergraduate degree that is not in psychology, but who wish to change direction and study or pursue a career in psychology. To embark on formal training as a psychologist, you need to hold a BPS accredited undergraduate degree in psychology. However, in order to complete a second degree for many people is costly both financially, and in terms of time.

This programme offers you an alternative and provides you with the opportunity to receive a Master’s qualification whilst studying all core areas that would be covered in a usual psychology undergraduate degree, on a part-time basis alongside work or busy family life.

This programme is a two year blended learning programme, meaning some teaching is face-to-face, and the majority of learning is self-directed from home. The programme will include three residential weekends per academic year at Gladstone’s Library (Hawarden, near Chester), where formal teaching will take place. In addition, two ‘on campus’ days will take place at the university’s Plas Coch campus in Wrexham per academic year. Therefore, this is also an ideal opportunity for those who may not live local to Wrexham, who are happy for occasional travel.
