Course summary

Programme overview

This British Psychological Society (BPS)-accredited MSc conversion programme provides students with an excellent grounding in the psychology of education. It draws on a wide range of theories and methods from across the core areas of psychology and encourages you to consider how they apply to education and educational contexts.

You will benefit from our longstanding tradition of high-quality research and teaching in this area and will acquire unique skills in both psychology and research methods. You will learn how research can inform theory, policy and practice, and how to conduct your own piece of empirical research to answer appropriate research questions. You will also acquire a range of transferable skills, such as communication skills, numerical reasoning, computer literacy and teamwork.

MSc Psychology of Education is a conversion programme designed specifically for individuals who do not already hold a BPS-accredited degree in psychology and who are seeking to achieve Graduate Basis for Chartered Membership (GBC) with the BPS. Individuals who are already eligible for GBC, having graduated from a BPS-accredited psychology undergraduate programme, will cover similar content to what they have studied previously, but may be interested in this programme because of its applied focus and relevance for pursuing professional training.

The knowledge and skills you will obtain are highly desired by employers and relevant to a wide range of careers in which an understanding of human behaviour or research methods is relevant. Successful students will be eligible to apply for Graduate Basis for Chartered Membership (GBC) with the BPS and for further professional training accredited by the BPS.

Some of our graduates have gone on to careers in educational psychology, clinical psychology, occupational psychology, counselling psychology, neuropsychology, research, community support (including mental health, school and youth work), or doctoral-level research.

Careers

We offer academic and personal development opportunities to equip you for the intellectual, social and personal challenges you will encounter during your career.

Our overarching goal is to enable our education graduates to display the following characteristics:

equipped to demonstrate impact, excellence and distinctiveness in your chosen field;
visionary, imaginative, innovative, reflective and creative;
high ideals and values, including a strong sense of social justice;
highly employable throughout the world;
adaptable, with the potential to be a leader in work and in the community.

Graduates of this route have gone on to careers in educational psychology, clinical psychology, occupational psychology, counselling psychology or neuropsychology and doctoral-level research.
