Psychology

The MSc Psychology is designed to confer Graduate Basis for Chartered Membership (GBC) with the British Psychological Society (BPS). GBC is the form of professional accreditation that is required for many careers that you may pursue with a psychology degree, as well as for advanced professional training in psychology. This is a conversion course. You do not need an undergraduate psychology degree but you'll need an honours degree, and 60 credits in psychology or have completed our CPD course.

Entry requirements

Applicants must have successfully completed a 1st degree and have obtained a minimum of 60 credits in psychology (at university level) prior to enrolling on this programme. For those who lack the prerequisite credits in psychology, Plymouth offers an intensive six week summer Certificate of Professional Development course which provides the necessary credits by introducing students to the core topics required for the British Psychological Society curriculum. The minimum IELTS score for acceptable English proficiency for entry is 6.5.

Core modules: biological psychology and neuropsychology; cognitive psychology; methods and practice of research in psychology; project; psychology of normal and atypical development; social and individual influences on behaviour.
