London South Bank University

Course Introduction

Unlike most psychology conversion courses in the UK, our course does not require 60 prior credits in psychology, as these credits are integrated into the course. By exploring themes connected with learning and memory, behaving with others, feelings, and thinking and communication in this manner you'll appreciate how bringing together the knowledge and perspectives of different areas of psychology contribute to a deeper and richer understanding of human behaviour. This, combined with the development of skills in critical thinking and research, will put you in an excellent position for postgraduate study or future employment.

Course Additional Entry

Applicants should be able to demonstrate a strong interest in psychology as an academic discipline and provide a clear rational for why they want to take the course. It is recommended they have at least one year's experience after their first degree in order to ensure they are committed to changing their career pathway. No prior study in psychology is required but if it can be demonstrated that the specific learning outcomes of a module on the course have been met on the appropriate level then credit prior learning via APL may be given. Applicants will be able to claim APL for a maximum of 3 units (60 credits).
