About

Overview

However, you should note that it is an intensive course and requires hard work and independent study outside the contact hours – full-time study IS full-time.  We welcome applications from graduates with upper second class degrees who have either completed a degree in another subject or who have insufficient psychology in their degree to be eligible for GBC.

We offer a work experience in psychology module as an option for those who would like to gain valuable experience in the work place.
