Entry requirements

Students are expected to hold an undergraduate honours degree of at least 2:1. However, we would also consider applicants with a 2:2 level who can demonstrate previous studies or professional experience related to psychology, research methods or statistics.

The programme is ideal if you’re wishing to make a career change into psychology, or if you have overseas qualifications and wish to convert your psychology degree into one approved by the BPS.

If you have overseas qualifications you can check their comparability with the UK equivalent through ECCTIS, who provide an advisory service. 

English language requirements

If your first language is not English then evidence of English proficiency is required. For further advice on the appropriateness of overseas qualification and proficiency in the use of English, please contact our International Office.

The minimum IELTS score for acceptable English proficiency for entry is 6.5.

We welcome applicants with international qualifications. To view other accepted qualifications please refer to our tariff glossary.
