MSc Psychology and Education (Conversion)

Course Description

An application for accreditation has been submitted to the British Psychological Society. We're waiting for confirmation of acceptance.

This course will give you an insight into core components of the British Psychological Society (BPS) curriculum, including biological, cognitive, developmental and social psychology, as well as conceptual and historical issues in psychology.

It’s a one-year, full-time course designed for students who don't have a degree in psychology but who do have an honours degree in another subject (minimum 2:1).

The MSc will equip you with the necessary understanding, skills and qualifications to enable you to pursue a career in psychology or cognate discipline.

Once you have successfully completed the course, you’ll be eligible to apply for Graduate Basis for Chartered membership (GBC) of the BPS. This means you’ll be eligible to apply for professional training programmes.
