Course Summary

Course Summary

This is a conversion course for students with a first degree in another subject area. It means you could go on and train to be a professional psychologist – for example, by studying for a Doctorate in Clinical Psychology. You may, however, simply want to study this course because you are interested in the subject, in which case you will return to your career enriched with knowledge of human behaviour. A concentrated lecture schedule – Wednesday afternoon and evening for those studying full-time, and if you study part-time you have the option of either Wednesday afternoons or evenings, which means you can combine the study with your current commitments.

Accredited by the British Psychological Society (BPS)

This accreditation is a mark of quality that students and employers understand and value. Studying a BPS accredited course will give you the opportunity to gain graduate or chartered membership for the Graduate Basis for Chartership (GBC). GBC is an important requirement for becoming a professional psychologist in areas such as clinical and educational psychology.

Your Future Career

The MSc in Psychology can be used in a variety of ways. For some careers (clinical psychology, educational psychology or counselling psychology for example), a BPS-accredited qualification in Psychology is a prerequisite for entry onto professional training courses.

For others, such as occupational psychology, the qualification can be used towards eventual Chartership in the field. In this case please check the relevant entry criteria for these careers (e.g. by visiting the British Psychology Society webpages).

If you find the academic side of psychology more appealing, you will be ideally placed to apply for research positions, having completed your own research project on this course. This can be used as a stepping stone to a research doctorate. Finally, we are a school with a tradition of teaching that goes back more than 50 years. The skills you gain here are transferable to a wide range of careers, including that of an applied researcher.
