MSc Psychology Conversion

Course Description

If you are a graduate who has not previously studied psychology but want a course that allows you to train to become a professional psychologist, then this is ideal. The MSc Psychology Conversion programme allows non-psychology graduates a flexible route into further postgraduate training to become a professional psychologist, eg Clinical, Forensic, Health, or Sport. You’ll gain an accredited psychology qualification that confers Graduate Basis for Chartered Membership (GBC) of the British Psychological Society (BPS). Discover the core areas of psychology, develop key skills and take optional modules to tailor the course to your own interests. The course also includes the opportunity to undertake an individual research project. You’ll be taught in modern facilities in a School that produces nationally and internationally excellent research. Progression is possible within the School onto a number of professional training courses in psychology for those who successfully complete the conversion course. Teaching takes place 1 day per week to support those with work and/or personal commitments.

Fee discounts apply for current students and alumni graduates.
