The Postgraduate Diploma (PgDip) in Psychological Studies is a conversion course for graduates who wish to pursue a professional career in psychology; for instance, in educational, occupational or clinical psychology. If your first degree was in a different subject, or you hold an honours degree in psychology that did not confer eligibility for the Graduate Basis for Chartership (GBC) of the British Psychological Society (formerly known as the Graduate Basis for Registration or GBR) then this course is for you.

This course has replaced the Graduate Diploma (GradDip) in Psychology previously offered by the University of Bolton.

It is assumed that you will have some knowledge of psychology with a minimum of 60 credits in the subject from your first degree studies. If you do not have 60 credits in psychology you may complete the Graduate Foundation Studies in Psychology course here at the University of Bolton (please follow the link in the 'related courses' section below for details) or complete an equivalent 60 credit course. On completion of the foundation course with an average mark of at least 50% over the three modules you will be eligible to enrol for the PgDip in Psychological Studies.

The course provides a curriculum that covers specifically identified areas in psychology, equivalent to those areas covered in the British Psychological Society‘s qualifying examination in psychology. The modules that you study will give you a strong grounding in core areas of psychology and in research methods, as well as an understanding of the science of psychology.

What you will learn

You will build on your studies at undergraduate level, and where appropriate your previous knowledge of psychology, to develop a strong foundation in understanding the science of psychology. You will learn about the core theories and concepts of psychology that apply to a wide range of human behaviour including language acquisition, learning, personality and relationships and gain an understanding of the philosophical, historical and social issues that have influenced the study and practice of psychology.

You will learn the methods of psychological research, for example collecting and analysing data and you will also be taught key skills such as accessing and evaluating information and effective communication.
