From September 2015, we will be expanding our taught provision with a brand new master’s level conversion course for those who would like to pursue a career in psychology but don’t yet hold a BPS-accredited psychology degree.
Currently in the process of validation and accreditation, this programme will confer eligibility for the Graduate Basis for Chartered Membership (GBC) with the British Psychological Society (BPS). Graduate Basis is a requirement for vocational training in psychology (e.g. Clinical Psychology; Forensic Psychology).
This conversion course can also be used as a stepping stone onto postgraduate research in psychology (e.g. PhD). However, the MSc Psychology (conversion course) at CCCU goes well beyond the core areas of psychology. The training in research methods will offer students the opportunity to engage in sophisticated, postgraduate level-research under the themes of our team: Society & Environment; Learning & Development; Cognition & Creativity; Health & Wellbeing. These modules will immerse students in current research by the Psychology Team and, together with their project, offer them the chance to actively contribute to that research.
In addition, students will receive career-orientated sessions, led by qualified practitioners, to help them along their chosen career path. To learn more about this course, please visit: www.canterbury.ac.uk/psychologyby
