These modules are all lecture-based; dedicated seminars are also provided for each core module. Assessment is by written examination at the end of each semester, by practical and research project reports, and written assessments. 

The Postgraduate Diploma in Psychology (Conversion) offers a selection of modules to cover the core areas of biological, cognitive, social and developmental psychology, statistics and research methods, and historical issues in psychology as specified by the British Psychological Society.
