The Masters in Psychology (Conversion) is a postgraduate conversion course for students who wish to pursue a professional career in Psychology (i.e. in clinical psychology, educational psychology, occupational psychology or other areas) but who don’t hold an honours degree in psychology or don't have eligibility for the Graduate Basis for Chartered Membership (GBC) from the British Psychological Society.
Masters students attend a selection of modules to cover the British Psychological Society core areas, and a limited number of more specialised elective modules. These modules are all lecture-based; dedicated seminars are also provided for each core module. Students must also complete an independent research project. Assessment is by written examination at the end of each semester, by practical and research project reports, and written assessments.
