Psychological Sciences (Conversion) programme from Brunel University London leads to a postgraduate qualification for students who have not studied psychology at undergraduate level and students who have studied a psychology degree without the BPS accreditation.
With this, you will be eligible to apply for graduate membership of the British Psychological Society (BPS). This is an entry requirement for all further postgraduate training programmes such as a PhD, ClinPsyD, or DEdPsy that lead to chartered status; for example, those accredited by the regulatory body, the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC).
This conversion course has been tailored to provide you with a firm foundation in core psychology theory, research methods and statistics. Following this, you can pursue areas of particular interest in your dissertation.
Your dissertation will be a maximum of 12,000 words, which enables you to demonstrate your knowledge and understanding of a specialist area in psychology. It will show your ability to interpret primary source material and integrate sound findings into your final report. This is your chance to develop a unique perspective on your chosen topic and work independently of others, consistent with BPS guidelines.
