Course Summary

Course overview

This is an MSc Psychology (Conversion) programme, not an MSc Psychology programme. As such, this course is aimed primarily at non-Psychology graduates who wish to undertake further training as a Psychologist, but do not wish to undertake a second undergraduate degree.

Effectively, you will be undertaking one half of an undergraduate Psychology degree in one third of the time, and for one fifth of the cost, before graduating with an MSc Psychology (Conversion) degree. Successful graduation will see you gain eligibility for Graduate Basis for Chartered Membership (GBC) of the British Psychological Society (BPS), enabling further training and a career as a Psychologist. No prior knowledge of psychology is expected.

About this course

Aided by active researchers in the field of psychology, you will cover all of the important areas within the discipline, and develop a broad understanding of human behaviour and interaction. Content will be taught through a mix of traditional lectures, student-led workshops and a broad array of assessments.

There will be a strong element of research design, encouraging critical thought and enabling a thorough and practical experience of the research process. You will be encouraged to take ownership of a valued research topic and to write up your MSc Thesis in a journal format that may lead to publication of impressive work.

By the time you graduate, even without previous experience of psychology, you will be well-placed to seek out further training and progress towards a career as a Psychologist.
