About

This BPS-accredited conversion Psychology degree offered at the University of Westminster is designed for graduates who wish to pursue a career in psychology but need to acquire the Graduate Basis for Chartered Membership (GBC) of the British Psychological Society (BPS). 

Overview

You do not need to have studied psychology to be eligible for this Psychology degree offered at the University of Westminster. 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.

You will take modules at Masters level in core areas of psychology, as specified by the BPS. You will also take one option module in psychology from a selection available within the department. We offer a work experience in psychology module as an option for those who would like to gain valuable experience in the work place.
