Course summary

Looking for a change of career? If your goal is to become a professional Psychologist, but you studied another subject at degree level, then our MSc Psychology Conversion course offers you a flexible route towards the career you’re looking for. You’ll get to explore the full breadth of psychology and tailor your studies to your interests and career goals.

If you’re fascinated by the way people act, react and interact, Psychology sheds light on it all – giving you the chance to explore the mechanics of the human condition.

How can we improve our ability to detect lies? What role does stress play in our lives? How can professionals improve their performance at work? How can we improve the mental health and wellbeing of society? Psychology offers the answers to these questions and more – helping you learn how to apply scientific methods to measure, understand and explain beliefs, decision-making processes and behaviour across a wide range of psychological settings.

Discover the core areas of psychology, develop key skills and tailor the course to your own interests.  The course also includes the opportunity to undertake an individual research project and to potentially engage in work-based learning.

Future careers
