The MSc Psychology is a new programme for graduates who wish to convert an existing degree into a recognised psychology qualification.
The programme covers all of the key sub-disciplines of psychology, and provides extensive training in research skills.
The MSc will provide you with a broad overview of the subject, promoting critical appraisal in relation to psychological models, theories and methodologies.
You will conduct practical research exercises and will produce a substantial research-based dissertation.
The programme is accredited by the British Psychological Society and therefore confers Graduate Basis for Chartered Membership (GBC).
The programme is designed to deliver a thorough grounding in all core areas of psychology, ensuring that you will be able to pursue a career in your chosen field upon completion.
It is likely that you will want or need the GBC in order to pursue your chosen career within psychology or you have decided to change careers into psychology.
Key components of the programme include:
A BPS-recognised qualification is essential for anyone wishing to pursue a career or further study in psychology in the UK.

I have found studying social psychology and individual differences fascinating, as I have always had an interest in society and how it works psychologically. I have enjoyed all the classes, and particularly the group interactions and discussions. Psychology is all about understanding others and, most importantly, yourself.
