About

The MSc Psychology (Conversion) offered by the University of Bolton is a great way to develop and enhance your critical understanding of psychological theories, methods and debates. What’s more, you can achieve eligibility for the Graduate Basis for Chartership (GBC) of the British Psychological Society (BPS).

Overview

If you’re looking to pursue a psychology-related career or further professional training in Psychology, this highly regarded conversion course offered by the University of Bolton is ideal. Maybe you’re considering a future in educational, occupational or clinical psychology, but don’t have enough credits in psychology at undergraduate level. Or perhaps your psychology degree didn’t come with eligibility for the Graduate Basis for Chartership of the British Psychological Society. Either way, this course is a great solution.

The programme modules cover specific areas of psychology equivalent to those in the British Psychological Society‘s qualification exam, and will give you an opportunity to achieve a firm grounding in psychological theories, approaches and research methods.

While most of your modules will be at Master’s level, you can expect to study in classes alongside our undergraduate students. Learning alongside our undergraduates offers you the opportunity to share in a wider variety of opinions and experiences, helping to broaden your view of psychology. We then offer separate Master’s-level tutorials, designed specifically for our MSc Psychology (Conversion) students, to support your achievement of postgraduate academic and critique skills.
