The course has been developed for those interested in developing their knowledge and ability in Psychology in general. It will also be the course that might be a good option for individuals who would like to develop their professional and academic skills, but do not intend to pursue a research career in psychology.
The course overlaps with the MSc in Psychological Research, but instead of emphasising research skills, this proposed programme will empower students with a range of professional skills. These skills are valuable, and highly sought after, in a range of different careers. The programme will also allow students to tailor their degree according to their interests, taking modules from our wide-range of world-class specialist modules.
In general, we aim to provide a high quality teaching and learning environment through the use of the latest teaching tools, team- taught courses, and closely mentored research with experts in clinical psychology.
This course can be completed in one, two, or three years, depending whether you take on full-time or part-time status. The course takes a full calendar year, as Semester III is dedicated to the analyses and writing of the thesis. Classes and meetings occur during working hours 5 days a week. You must complete all of the components of the course to receive the MSc degree.
Applicants should normally have a BPS-accredited first degree or a conversion degree in Psychology, usually with a 2(ii) or equivalent. In exceptional circumstances, a degree class lower than 2(ii), or a non-graduate qualification or relevant work experience may be deemed to be at a satisfactory standard for the purpose of postgraduate admission. IELTS 6.0 (no element below 5.5).
