This programme is designed for graduates in any area who wish to pursue a career in professional psychology. Completing this programme will qualify you for entry to further training, in areas such as forensic, occupational, clinical and sports psychology. Whether you’ve studied psychology but didn’t gain accreditation with the British Psychological Society (BPS), or you’re looking to change career paths, this programme is suitable for you.

Converting your degree to a new subject area can be a considerable challenge. Participants on this course value the close and supportive relationship between staff and students, achieved during face-to-face interaction in the classroom, laboratory practicals and personal tutor meetings. You will also find that the other graduates in your cohort provide an important source of social support as you all undergo this intensive learning experience. Our philosophy on this course is to build on your existing graduate skills and attributes, and to focus on addressing your particular needs.

The course is taught by a team of chartered psychologists who are committed to offering an excellent student experience. They can also provide advice on career routes and academic progression, including specialisation in forensic psychology or occupational psychology.
