This BPS-accredited conversion course is designed for graduates who wish to pursue a career in psychology but need to acquire the Graduate Basis for Chartered Membership (GBC) of the British Psychological Society (BPS). This was previously termed ‘Graduate Basis for Registration’ (GBR). You do not need to have studied psychology to be eligible for this programme.
We welcome applications from graduates who have either completed a degree in another subject or who have insufficient psychology in their degree to be eligible for GBC.
The following modules are indicative of what you will study on this course. For more details on course structure and modules, and how you will be taught and assessed, see the full course document on the Master website.
- Developmental and Differental Psychology
- Fundamentals of Psychology
- Project for Psychology MSC
- Psychobiology and Cognitive Psychology
- Qualitative Research Methods
- Quantitative Research Methods
- Social Psychology and Conceptual Issues in Psychology
You will choose an option from a wide range of Masters level courses within the Department of Psychology, subject to availability and timetable constraints. A new practice-based option module is Work Experience in a Psychological Setting for MSc students.
Other possible options include: Health and the Lifespan; Psychology Literature Project (critically evaluating the literature on a chosen topic); Developing Communications; Specialist Topics in Health Psychology and many more.
We welcome applications from graduates with a recognised university degree at Second Class Honours level or above (or equivalent). Applicants who have taken an Honours programme but only obtained a pass/ordinary/aegrotat degree will not be eligible for the course. As statistical procedures are a key element of Psychology, we require applicants to demonstrate competence in mathematics, for example through having obtained GSCE mathematics (or equivalent). We also encourage applicants to provide evidence of interest in the discipline of psychology and reflection on the ways that their experience to date would enable them to succeed at Masters level.
If your first language is not English, an attainment of at least IELTS 6.5 or equivalent must be demonstrated. The University offers pre-sessional summer programmes if you need to improve your English before starting your course. Students from all backgrounds, irrespective of age, gender, sexuality or ethnic/cultural background are encouraged to apply.
Graduate Basis for Chartered Membership (GBC) is the first step towards becoming a Chartered Psychologist. It is the prerequisite for progression to Postgraduate professional training in psychology and subsequent registration as a Chartered Psychologist working in any of the fields of professional psychology – including clinical, counselling, educational, occupational, and health psychology. It is a requirement for Masters and Doctorate courses in Psychology that lead to professional qualifications such as Doctorates in counselling, Clinical and Educational Psychology, and Masters courses in Organisational/Occupational Psychology.
