Course summary

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 will need to hold a BPS accredited undergraduate degree in psychology. However, choosing to complete a second degree can be costly for many people, both financially and in terms of time. This programme offers you an alternative, providing you with the opportunity to receive a master’s qualification whilst studying all the core areas that would be covered in a usual psychology undergraduate degree.
  • This is a blended learning programme, meaning that some teaching will be face-to-face in a classroom, but the majority of learning will take place via online tutorials.
  • The programme will include three residential weekends and two ‘on campus’ days per academic year at the university’s Plas Coch campus in Wrexham.


  • Accredited by the British Psychological Society.
  • Become part of a diverse community of students.
  • A perfect mix of online learning with face-to-face teaching.
  • Take part in our engaging residential weekends and ‘on campus’ days.
  • Achieve a recognised master's qualification to help start your career in psychology.


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 enhancing their knowledge in a particular module. Each residential weekend will be 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.


Our Careers & Employability service is there to help you make decisions and plan the next steps towards a bright future. From finding work or further study to working out your interests, skills and aspirations, they can provide you with the expert information, advice and guidance you need.

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.
