Postgraduate Psychology

Psychology is a popular, fascinating subject that affects everyone. Giving insight into the behaviour and thoughts of both individuals and groups and the environmental factors that influence these; psychology is both a stimulating and wide discipline, covering many areas and theories.

 

There are more than 1000 psychology postgraduate courses available in the UK, for both those with an entirely unrelated undergrad degree and those wishing to specialise or pursue professions such as Clinical Psychology. The latter typically lasts three years, but others can be as short as a year-long PgDip or Msc.
