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).
