Why Study the MSc Psychology Conversion Course at the University of Bolton?

Our MSc Psychology Conversion course is suitable for graduates who want to refocus their studies and enter the field of psychology or counselling. If you’re interested in doing this, it’s a great time to enrol with the University of Bolton. We are offering a 2020 master’s bursary with up to £3,000 to support your Postgraduate studies.

We provide a supportive and friendly learning environment, and our course leaders will spend time getting to know you and your career goals, adapting the programme to prepare you for your chosen field of work. Here’s why a Psychology Conversion course might be right for you.

Not enough credits

If you didn’t earn enough credits at undergraduate level, a conversion course can act as a booster, opening up a range of opportunities for further education. This means you can move onto further studies to achieve a doctorate or qualify for work-based training and graduate schemes.

No BPS accreditation

Our Psychology Conversion course is accredited by the British Psychological Society (BPS), and offers you the chance to achieve the Graduate Basis for Chartership. If your existing psychology degree didn’t come with this, a conversion course is the fastest route to getting the accreditations you need for the workplace.

Career change

An Upper Second Class Honours degree (2.1) in a relevant subject like social science or science is usually needed for entry into the MSc Psychology Conversion course. However, applications will be considered if alternative evidence of your suitability can be provided. Things like work experience or personal studies can be beneficial, making it possible for career changers to transfer their skills into their dream career.

Does any of this sound like you? To find out more, visit the MSc Psychology Conversion course page and download a brochure today.

There are so many reasons to choose us for your Postgraduate studies. Not only have we been voted No.1 in the North West for Student Satisfaction for the past three years (Complete University Guide in 2021, 2020 and 2019), but we also rank in the Top 5 in the UK for Teaching Quality (The Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide in 2021 and 2020).
