Entry Requirements

Students are expected to hold an undergraduate honours degree of at least 2:1. However, we would also consider applicants with a 2:2 level who can demonstrate previous studies or professional experience related to psychology, research methods or statistics.

The programme is ideal if you’re wishing to make a career change into psychology, or if you have overseas qualifications and wish to convert your psychology degree into one approved by the BPS.

If you have overseas qualifications you can check their comparability with the UK equivalent through ECCTIS, who provide an advisory service.
