The Psychology of Mental Health (Conversion) programme from The University of Edinburgh can be taken full-time or over 2 to 6 years part-time (invoiced at course level).
You will study a series of taught courses in core areas of psychology and complete a research project.
Teaching approaches focus on delivery of psychological science and its application to mental health.
The programme's courses cover classic and contemporary psychology theories and are delivered through a range of engaging teaching approaches. While most classes are face-to-face, other courses have a blended format where students will participate in both online learning and supplementary tutorials. You are able to tailor your studies to your interests through your research project topic.
Graduates will be eligible to register with the British Psychological Society through graduate basis for chartered membership (GBC). This will create career opportunities where a psychology degree is advantageous or essential. It also creates opportunities for advanced professional training in psychology (e.g. Clinical Psychology or Educational Psychology), which normally require an undergraduate degree in psychology.
You will also develop a range of sophisticated psychological research skills that will open career opportunities in research, including research assistant posts and doctoral research training.
