Opportunities to specialise in clinical or educational psychology


This Psychology (Conversion) programme from The University of Exeter  is specifically designed to enable students with a non-psychology background to pursue a psychology-based career, many of which require a BPS accredited degree for further training. This degree will therefore help prepare graduates for a subsequent career in, for example, clinical psychology, educational psychology, organisational and occupational psychology, and forensic psychology.

Graduates will acquire a number of skills on completion of the programme, including enhancing their ability to think critically and solve problems, to learn through team work and be engaged in a student-led project. They will also become an engaged and participative leader in debates on psychological issues, and the diversity of assignments they will complete will make them adaptable and resilient.
