Course content

The MSc in Psychology (Conversion) is a full-time taught postgraduate programme run by the School of Psychology and Neuroscience. It is a conversion route for students who hold an undergraduate Honours degree in a subject other than psychology. The programme provides a detailed knowledge of the core areas of psychology and principal theoretical and methodological issues in the field.

Highlights

  • The course equips students with the necessary skills to pursue a research degree at MPhil or PhD level in the area of psychology or to go on to a clinical training programme.
  • Students have access to laboratories in neurophysiology, psychopharmacology, psychophysics, animal learning and cognition, cognitive psychology, developmental psychology and social psychology.
  • The course is accredited by the British Psychological Society and therefore fulfils the requirements for entry to most UK PhD programmes in psychology.

Teaching format

Over two semesters, students will take nine compulsory modules. The modules are taught through lectures, seminars, workshops and tutorials. Assessment comprises entirely of coursework; there are no exams. Class sizes range up to 135 students for lectures, which are shared with undergraduates in our Honours programme for modules focusing in core psychological knowledge, and up to 20 students for seminars, workshops, and tutorials.

The final three months of your course will be dedicated to a 15,000-word research project dissertation.

In addition to the support provided by the research project supervisor and module coordinators, there is a dedicated team of staff offering support for students.
