Subject to accreditation by the British Psychological Society (BPS), when you graduate you will be able to gain Graduate Basis for Chartership (GBC) which will allow you to pursue other professional psychology postgraduate programmes, and take the next step towards a career as a chartered psychologist. You will also achieve PGCert ad PGDip awards in this course.

As a distance learner you will have support from the Department through regular contact with your module tutors, access to specialist services and a wide range of e-books and research journals at the University Library.
