The MSc in Psychology is designed to confer Graduate Basis for Registration (GBR) with the British Psychological Society (BPS). GBR is the form of professional accreditation that is required for many careers that individuals with Psychology degrees typically pursue, as well as for the pursuit of advanced professional training in Psychology. The programme will run in conjunction with the School’s existing taught programmes, including its BPS-accredited BSc (Hons) Psychology and MSc in Psychological Research Methods programmes. These programmes are provided by over 30 members of staff with a range of expertise in various areas of Psychology.
Graduate Basis for Chartered Membership (GBC) with the British Psychological Society is the minimum qualification for many types of further training in psychology, as well as for licensing as a professional psychologist.
