Psychology of Education

This MSc provides a Master's-level grounding in psychology, paying particular attention to its implications for education and other professional practice. This pathway will be suitable if you already hold Graduate Basis for Chartered Membership (GBC) status, or if you do not intend to work as a psychologist in the UK after graduation. You will study alongside students on the MSc Psychology of Education BPS programme and have access to the same units. The key difference between the two programmes is that you will have more flexibility in your choice of units. You will not be required to undertake work in statistics, and can choose from a wider range of optional units. This programme of study leads to the MSc Education (Psychology of Education), but does not make you eligible for GBC.

Entry requirements

A UK honours degree (second-class honours or international equivalent); and either a substantial academic background (at least 60 credits at undergraduate level) in psychology, or significant work experience in an area relevant to psychology.

One year's appropriate professional experience relevant to psychology (eg work as a teacher, learning support assistant, assistant psychologist or volunteer in schools or settings for vulnerable clients).

See international equivalent qualifications on the International Office website.
