What will I learn?

What makes the MSc Psychology conversion course at the University of Worcester special?

Our MSc Psychology is an accredited, online programme offering flexible learning to fit with your busy lifestyle. If you have a non-psychology (or non-accredited psychology) degree and want to switch to a career in Psychology, completing our course will give you Graduate Basis for Chartership (GBC) with the British Psychological Society - your first step to a career as a psychologist.

Studying postgraduate level psychology with us will mean you join a friendly, community of learners who enjoy a high-quality teaching and learning experience - the University of Worcester is ranked 6th out of 68 institutions for postgraduate study (Postgraduate Taught Experience Survey, Advance HE).

Developing your employability is central to our course. Here at Worcester, we've designed the MSc Psychology curriculum around your busy lifestyle and future ambitions. We will support you in developing the skills that will open doors in a range of sectors, including health, business, counselling, education and doctoral research training. Communication, problem solving, critical thinking, team working, and data collection and analysis are just some of the skills that will increase your appeal to employers.

You will learn from subject specialists and research-active academics working on cutting edge projects to help you develop your research skills and expertise. This translates to our teaching and learning approach which is research-inspired and evidence-based. As well as learning about the core areas of Psychology, we also prepare you for the next step of your Psychology journey with tailored personal academic support and training through our ‘Professional Skills Development’ module.

We recognise our students are on a rapid path of new learning and development, and we have tailored our programme to guide you at every step of your journey; there are lots of opportunities to practice your academic skills, test your knowledge and gain feedback and support to help you succeed at an advanced level of study. We teach our students in way that works for them; we listen and work in partnership with our students.
