This taught Masters degree is designed for graduates in Psychology or a related discipline who wish to learn and apply the skills needed to thrive in a range of careers in organisations, from start-ups to multinationals. The programme is framed around the key skills of creativity, innovation, communication, teamwork, leadership and management. It provides an immersive learning environment that fosters these skills through a combination of traditional, modern and technology-enhanced learning methods. Above all, the course is organic, enabling you to acquire the relevant skills by undertaking and discussing projects and activities that are derived from your own motives, knowledge and experience.
You should have a degree equivalent to UK first-class or upper second-class honours (2:1 or above) in psychology or a cognate discipline involving human sciences, including business and management, geography, social sciences, sport and exercise science, or a health-related subject.
Students with a lower second class honours degree (2:2) may be admitted at the department’s discretion, based on evidence of relevant experience and/or prior learning.
An interview forms part of the selection process.
International students require IELTS 6.5, with a score no lower than 6.0 in each individual component, or an equivalent English language qualification.
If your current level of English is half a band lower, either overall or in one or two elements, you may want to consider our Pre-Sessional English course.
