Course Information

Our conversion degree is an excellent fast-track route for those with appropriate qualifications but without an undergraduate degree in psychology.

The course provides a broad scientific education in psychology with a strong grounding in psychological theories and research methods. It explores how psychological research is conducted, analysed and reported. This is delivered through a series of guided learning exercises, culminating in an independent research project.

Our course is accredited by the British Psychological Society (BPS) as conferring eligibility for Graduate Basis for Chartered Membership (GBC). This is required if you wish to become a chartered psychologist (e.g. clinical, educational, forensic, sport, occupational, health or counselling psychologist). It is also suitable if you have obtained a degree in psychology (home and overseas) that is not recognised by the BPS. It may also be of interest to health and social care professionals with some background in psychology at degree level.

The MSc programme is geared towards obtaining Graduate Basis for Chartered membership (GBC) with the British Psychological Society, for people that do not have an undergraduate (Bachelors) degree in Psychology accredited by that society.
