Course Summary

About the course

The Psychological Sciences MSc (Conversion) online has been created for students and working professionals from non-psychology backgrounds, who want to gain a comprehensive understanding of psychology, its practical applications, and impact on society.

As a graduate, you’ll have acquired important subject specific skills and transferable skills at an advanced level, such as data analysis, problem solving and project management and effective communication including report preparation, whilst also building a solid basis to pursue a career as a professional psychologist through further study within the discipline (e.g. PhD, ClinPsyD, DEdPsy).

This online master's in psychology is accredited by the British Psychological Society (BPS), which means you'll be eligible for Graduate Basis for Chartered Membership (GBC) from the BPS, essential for pursuing a career in recognised psychology professions.


In addition to building a solid foundation to pursue a career in clinical psychology, you’ll also gain the transferable skills, knowledge, and expertise sought-after by employers in a variety of sectors. Graduates may choose to explore career opportunities in media, marketing, HR, law enforcement, finance, health, and education, as well as government and non-governmental agencies and healthcare organisations.
