Program Description

MSc Psychology

University of Derby Online Learning

Our MSc Psychology Conversion degree is the only online conversion course accredited by the British Psychological Society (BPS) and has been designed for anyone who doesn't hold a full psychology undergraduate degree but wants to pursue a career in psychology.

Study up to Postgraduate Diploma level and obtain your GBC

You can study this conversion course up to Postgraduate Diploma level (120 credits) and obtain your Graduate Basis for Chartership (GBC) within 12-15 months, but it will typically take up to 2 years, depending on your pace of study and other commitments.

One step closer to a career in Psychology

By completing the full MSc or PG Diploma, you will be one step closer to becoming a practicing psychologist. This course alone will not allow you to practice but provides an opportunity for a non-psychology graduate to meet one of the entry requirements of further study, which can in turn lead to becoming a practicing psychologist. For example by taking our MSc Health Psychology online or choosing another specialist area such as Clinical Psychology.

Further information about how to become a practicing psychologist can be found on the BPS website.

Interactive and practical learning

This online learning degree is specifically designed by our expert online tutors and contains plenty of opportunities to interact with tutors and other students through online discussion forums, virtual class room sessions and more traditional forms of communication such as email and Skype.

We've designed this course so that it's flexible to suit you. It will take you 2-3 years to study for the full MSc, depending on how much learning you can fit in around your other commitments.

Studying online gives you the flexibility to study at the most convenient time and place for you. Course modules still operate within a fixed trimester but you can choose to study during the day, in the evenings or at the weekend rather than having to attend fixed lectures.
