The MSc in Psychology is a conversion course for individuals already possessing an undergraduate degree in a field other than Psychology but who wish to develop a professional career in Psychology. Previous study of psychology is not required.

By providing the requisite knowledge and skills for post-graduate education and training, this conversion course is the key gateway to a career in clinical, counselling, forensic, health, educational, occupational or other areas of Psychology.

Our previous Graduate Diploma level conversion course was accredited by the British Psychological Society (BPS) and satisfied the requirements for the Graduate Basis of Chartership of the BPS. This new Masters level conversion course is awaiting accreditation by the BPS and we expect to achieve accreditation by June 2017.

Psychology is an exceptionally versatile degree because it offers understanding of many aspects of human behaviour, applicable to many sectors of society, such as education, health, business and social welfare. The course is amongst the first in the UK to teach the core curriculum in an integrated fashion, which brings together different approaches to psychology within each module and thereby provides a deeper and richer understanding of human behaviour.

Having knowledge of the processes that underlie and influence learning, memory, social interactions, feelings, thinking and communication, combined with the development of skills in critical thinking and research, will put you in an excellent position for further post-graduate training or future employment.

Modules

Emotion and human behaviour
Perception, attention and memory
Social behaviour
Thinking, intelligence and communication
Psychological Research Methods 1+2
Masters Empirical Research Project

Assessment

We use a range of assessment methods within the Division of Psychology for different modules. The range of previously used methods are:

Essays
Practical/research reports
Unseen exams
Multiple choice questions
Scenario based reports
Case studies
Posters and presentations
Executive reports
Portfolios
Group work folders

Employability

As most psychology graduates will go into a wide range of careers, there is no such thing as a traditional career path for graduates. A majority of psychology graduates decide to pursue careers in other fields and as psychology graduates, they leave with an almost unmatched range of transferable skills, from excellent written and analytical skills to an understanding of how people behave.

However if you do want to stay in psychology, then a conversion course, accredited by the British Psychological Society (BPS), together with an appropriate qualification within the specific field of psychology could lead you to a career as a Chartered Psychologist in clinical, forensic, educational or occupational psychology. Although our previous conversion course and all our existing undergraduate courses are accredited by the BPS, this new Masters level conversion course is awaiting accreditation from the BPS and we expect this to be achieved by June 2017.

This course will teach you excellent written, analytical and numerical skills which will enable you to pursue a wide range of careers in areas such as counselling, teaching, the probation and court services, market research, human resources and business.

Careers support

Our department provides careers support and advice for the time our students study with us and beyond. We organise various careers activities such as talks and seminars, and have arranged work placements in collaboration with many organisations. For example:

• NHS clinics and hospital units (psychosexual, forensic and clinical psychology units)
• brain damage units
• addiction rehabilitation units
• charitable organisations working with stroke patients
• children with disabilities
• young offenders

We also hold an annual careers fair for our second and third year students and work closely with London South Bank University alumni who have gone on to successful careers in Psychology.

Career progression

Recent graduates have gone onto roles such as Assistant Psychologist (Clinical), Research Assistant, Social Worker, Mental Health Support Worker, and Mental Health Nurse.

If you graduate from this course, you'll be able to apply for further study at postgraduate level. The academic strength of this course means that you can also consider entering the field of academic research (e.g. a recent student has just started studying for a PhD)

If you gain significant professional practice experience you would be able to consider a practitioner MSc course such as our part-time MSc Addiction Psychology and Counselling.

This two year, fast-track degree prepares you to provide holistic, compassionate care and support for people with mental health problems.

Students starting PG Dip courses in September 2017 will receive a NHS Tuition Fee Bursary to cover the full tuition fees for the duration of their course.

Who is it for?

The Postgraduate Diploma in Mental Health Nursing is designed for well motivated individuals looking for a rewarding and challenging career.

As a Mental Health Nurse, you should be patient and compassionate in order to recognise individual needs and the appropriate interventions for them. It is all about helping people make positive changes to their lives and supporting them on their journey of recovery.

Objectives

City’s Postgraduate Diploma in Mental Health Nursing offers you the opportunity to train in one of London’s leading and most well-established departments for nursing education. Our priority is to ensure that you graduate with the skills and knowledge to enter the mental health nursing profession, which can often be a stressful and challenging environment, with confidence.

As a student at City, you will combine theoretical study with clinical experience, working with London's diverse population in leading hospitals and community settings. We will prepare you for all aspects of the profession including supporting people working towards recovery, dealing with crisis and emergency situations, improving the effect of patients’ physical health, detecting deterioration and how to approach, assess and provide the most appropriate care and treatment in differing situations.

Placements

Half of your time as a student will be spent gaining practice experience through clinical placements and simulated practice. Placements are a vital factor in promoting understanding and development of professional skills. They help you become fit for practice, fit for purpose and fit for award by the time you complete your programme.

Each placement provides you with educational opportunities to develop your professional skills and allows students to explore the journeys of service users including older people, the severely ill, those in recovery and those detained in secure (forensic) settings. The majority of placements are with the East London NHS Foundation Trust which includes the boroughs of Newham, City & Hackney and Tower Hamlets. There are also opportunities for a 2 week elective placement outside the Trust.

Support in Practice

Students are supported in practice by practice experience staff who liaise between the Institution and the Trust, Mentors and Link Lecturers. At City we also use an innovative method of group work to support students and help them to develop the ability to understand and process the emotional impact of working in mental health.

Academic facilities

Our specialist Clinical Skills Centre at City’s Northampton Square campus has been specially designed for teaching and reflects clinical environments and working wards, so you can familiarise yourself with equipment and practices before commencing your placement. Simulated practice enables you to practise your skills in a safe environment, in preparation for transferring these skills to a 'real life' setting.

Teaching and learning

The teaching on the Mental Health Nursing course includes lecture sessions, workshops, small group activities and discussions and whole class discussion.

We are also using an innovative method of group work to support students and help them to develop the ability to understand and process the emotional impact of working in mental health.

Assessment

Assessments are varied to meet the practice and academic challenges of the Postgraduate Diploma, while recognising the need for motivating, realistic and relevant activity. The practice element is assessed by the development of a record of achievement in practice and Objective Structured Clinical Examinations. Modules are also assessed through essays or seminars.

Modules

Your learning will draw on areas including nursing, psychology, sociology and biology in order for you to develop your communication and evidence based clinical skills.

Our curriculum focuses on relationship centred care and will support you to develop effective working relationships with patients, service users, families and professional colleagues.

The programme is organised into three parts and you must successfully complete each part to move into the next part of the programme. Each part includes theory modules, simulated practice and clinical placements. For more details, see the website: http://www.city.ac.uk/courses/postgraduate/mental-health-nursing

As well as a career as a mental health nurse, you can move into areas within the health and social care sector including advising on policy and quality of care and academic teaching and research. You will also be able to go onto further study at MSc level, including an MSc Advanced Practice degree at City.

You will receive careers support from your personal tutor during the course and are encouraged to explore your personal career aspirations.

Key Facts:
The aim of the Pg Cert/Dip/MSc Social Work in Mental Health/ Mental Health route is to achieve Approved Mental Health Professional (AMHP) training so that you can put yourself forward for AMHP status. This is achieved through the use of critical analysis, synthesis and reflective skills, both through study as well as practice. The course seeks to further the development of practitioners of mental health care by enabling them to become creative, innovative and effective practitioners. This programme is open to a variety of social workers and health care workers who currently engage with people with varying mental health needs.

Course overview:
The course is aimed at people who have 2 years post qualification mental health experience and wish to practice as an Approved Mental Health Professional (AMHP) or existing AMHPs who wish to gain a Post Graduate Diploma or MSc in mental health, including a Higher Specialist award for registered social workers.

Lecturers are experts in mental health practice and education. The programme has a national reputation for delivering mental health teaching and modules offered include the deprivation of liberty safeguards.

Entry Requirements:
To access the course you must:
• Be able to demonstrate your ability to study at this level of learning
• Be two years Post Qualified as a; Social Worker, Nurse, Occupational Therapist or Psychologist

Course structure:
The Pg Cert / Dip / MSc Social Work in Mental Health /Mental Health is offered as a 2-year part-time degree programme. It is a part taught and part practice course that aims to integrate theory and practice, through work, supervision and reflection on practice.

The route consists of seven modules of study, five of which constitute the core (AMHP compulsory) modules. A further two modules complete the pathway.

Depending on the modules taken, the awards offered will vary. The schema below indicates this.
All modules have a minimum of 6 taught days at university and direct contact with tutors. The placements are divided into two blocks of 5 days for shadowing experience and a block placement of 45 days.

All placements are supervised by a practice assessor.

The law module has 10 taught days which is unique to the region and is welcomed by local partner agencies and employers. Study days have been built in the programme and you will be allocated a tutor for support throughout the programme.

You will be awarded a Post Graduate Certificate/Diploma on completion of 6 modules and a MSc Mental Health on completion of the whole programme.

The evaluation of the programme by students and external examiners in terms of teaching and learning and quality has, to date, been excellent.

Placements, Study Visits Available:
The programme offers you learning opportunities in a range of settings within mental health practice including community mental health teams, home treatments, hospital settings, forensic teams. Assertive outreach teams, children and adolescent mental health services and older adults.

Assessment:
Involves an assessment of both theory and practice.
Each module (or double module) is assessed as a ‘stand alone’ item. Practice assessment involves a triumvirate approach between the practice supervisor, you and the pathway leader. Competencies are identified for each practice module and you are assessed against these over a period of time. You are required to demonstrate "evidence" of competency through the compilation of a portfolio that also contains written work that is reflective of practice. The core theme of the assessment approach is about how you understand the use of theory to enhance practice and, indeed, to demonstrate personal growth and development. Assessment in the core modules follows a more traditional academic path but the link to practice is not lost. The themes of the assessment are also about aspects of practice. As you will be assessed academically for the core modules and clinically for pathway specific modules you will need to have a practice supervisor for your placement.

Further study:
These courses provides the opportunity for lifelong learning and the awards given on graduation forms the basis for progression into further study.

A comprehensive portfolio of post-registration courses called Learning Beyond Registration (LBR) is available within the Faculty of Health. Visit http://www.bcu.ac.uk/health/lbr

These courses allow for academic and/or clinical development. Many of the courses are taught as part-time flexible modules to fit around your work and domestic commitments.

The MSc course is designed for senior health professionals who want to progress their careers within the clinical environment and are involved in hands-on care and innovative development of service delivery.

Employability:
All candidates are required to be in employment at the point of application. The qualification enables post qualified employees to undertake the AMHP role.

We offer post graduate pre-registration nursing in two fields of nursing (adult and mental health) and have excellent links with the NHS and other care providers. Read more
We offer post graduate pre-registration nursing in two fields of nursing (adult and mental health) and have excellent links with the NHS and other care providers. Nursing skills are taught and assessed in four laboratories. Learning clinical skills in the laboratories ensures that students develop competence in a safe, protected environment. In order to develop multi-professional and collaborative working, there is shared learning between nursing and midwifery students in areas such as biological and social sciences, informatics, research, ethics, health policy and management.

This programme offers both practice and theoretical learning in a variety of institutional and community settings. For adult nursing, placements are in hospitals and the local community, such as GP practices and with community nurses and health visitors. Mental health nursing placements are much more community-focused, in clinics, forensic services and health centres.

Applications for these programmes should be made via UCAS. Please note that this programme is not available to international students.

The aims of the programme are:

- To develop the personal and professional skills needed to competently undertake the role and responsibilities of a registered nurse

- To promote higher order thinking and the potential ability to undertake a leadership role in professional practice

- To work collaboratively with other professionals, service users and carers.
