Entry Requirements

You must hold a UK honours degree (2:2 at least) or equivalent to be accepted for the MSc in Psychology. Your first degree need not be in forensic psychology or psychology, but you must have the skills expected of a social sciences graduate.

All students will begin with the postgraduate module, Principles of social and psychological inquiry (DD801). This module will help equip you with the requisite skills needed to undertake postgraduate-level study, but it does not offer remedial training for those with an unsuitable bachelors degree or inadequate experience.
