Course summary

Looking for a change in direction? Already have a non-psychology degree? Want to study psychology without having to do a three-year traditional undergraduate degree again? This programme could be the answer.

This programme has been designed for those who hold an undergraduate degree that is not in psychology, but who wish to change direction and study or pursue a career in psychology. To embark on formal training as a psychologist, you need to hold a BPS accredited undergraduate degree in psychology. However, in order to complete a second degree for many people is costly both financially, and in terms of time.

This programme offers you an alternative and provides you with the opportunity to receive a Master’s qualification whilst studying all core areas that would be covered in a usual psychology undergraduate degree, on a part-time basis alongside work or busy family life.

This programme is a blended learning programme, meaning some teaching is face-to-face, and the majority of learning is self-directed from home. The programme will include three residential weekends per academic year at Gladstone’s Library (Hawarden, near Chester), where formal teaching will take place. In addition, two ‘on campus’ days will take place at the university’s Plas Coch campus in Wrexham per academic year. Therefore, this is also an ideal opportunity for those who may not live local to Wrexham, who are happy for occasional travel.

KEY COURSE FEATURES

  • Accredited by the British Psychological Society.
  • Study around full-time work and busy family life.
  • Be a part of a community of students at our residential events.
  • A perfect mix of flexible self-directed study at home, with rich face-to-face teaching experiences.
  • Ideal for those who live both locally to Wrexham, or at a distance.
  • Residential weekends will take place at Gladstone’s Library in Hawarden (subject to availability).

ASSESSMENT & TEACHING

Students will be expected to attend face-to-face teaching across three residential teaching weekends per academic year (running between Saturday noon-Monday noon, different timings apply). Students will also be expected to attend two ‘on campus’ days per academic year. During this contact time, students will engage in lectures, seminars and workshops aimed at increasing their knowledge in a particular module. Each residential weekend is focused on a different core module (e.g. developmental psychology). The remainder of the study will be self-directed distance learning from home.

Study at home will include reading, the completion of set assignments, the viewing of webinar material and engagement in online forum discussions.

Assignments include the completion of essays, reports, poster presentations, oral presentations, and coursework.

CAREER PROSPECTS

This course would be ideal for those who wish to progress onto formal training to become a psychologist, or who wish to pursue a career in academia in psychology.
