University of Liverpool
We are in the process of applying for accreditation from the British Psychological Society. As the University is an existing provider of accredited undergraduate Psychology programmes we are able to apply for fast track approval.
The Psychology conversion MSc draws on our research excellence. Our focus on transferable skills means a psychology degree from Liverpool will be suitable for a wide range of career choices. The programme is suitable for graduates with a degree in a subject other than psychology, or a degree in psychology that has not been accredited by the British Psychological Society.
An application for the BPS accreditation of this programme is being submitted to the British Psychological Society.
This programme is centred on the British Psychological Society “Standards for the accreditation of undergraduate, conversion and integrated Master’s programmes in psychology, January 2019”. Research is embedded in the programme from the beginning, with both core and research-focussed lectures and research-focussed seminars alongside studying research methods and statistics.
All applicants to the conversion programme must hold a degree; this may include (a) a degree in a subject other than psychology, or (b) a degree in psychology that has not been accredited by the British Psychological Society.
Additionally, applicants must have achieved an Upper Second Class Honours (2.1) or above.
Applications from international students wishing to undertake the programme will be evaluated to ensure that their qualifications have been gained from a recognised institution, and to ensure that the applicant has achieved the required academic level.
Applications from international students are welcome. International qualifications will be evaluated in line with the National Recognition Information Centre (NARIC) guidelines.
All applicants must have reached a minimum required standard of English language and are required to provide evidence of this. Qualifications accepted by the University and English Language requirements specific to your country can be found on our International webpages: https://www.liverpool.ac.uk/study/international/
