What will I learn?
During the course you will gain a scientific understanding of the mind, brain and behaviour, and how they interact with the complex environments in which they exist as well as learn to critically evaluate methodologies and collect and interpret primary and secondary empirical data.
Our online MSc Psychology gives you the opportunity to specialise in psychology through learning the distinctive range, depth and applications of psychology that will enable you to gain a comprehensive understanding of the core areas of psychology required by the BPS. This includes biological, cognitive, developmental, social psychology and more.
One step towards Chartership
Designed to provide comprehensive coverage of the core areas of psychology required by the BPS, this online degree takes you one step closer to becoming a chartered psychologist.
This course alone will not allow you to practice but provides an opportunity for a non-psychology graduate, or a graduate from a non-BPS accredited course to come one step closer in working towards achieving Graduate Basis for Chartership (GBC).
Free student membership of the British Psychological Society
To celebrate delivering online psychology degrees for ten years, we've introduced free student membership with the British Psychological Society (BPS). All students studying on one of our core Psychology programmes will receive full BPS student membership for the duration of their studies.

You will usually need one of the following:
- An undergraduate degree with Honours (in any subject) from a UK university or equivalent overseas qualification – at least a 2:2.

- An undergraduate degree from an overseas institution that is equivalent to the above UK qualifications. It is also important that you have a good standard of written and spoken English.
From here you can then choose which area you would like to specialise in and continue to further training.
