MEd Psychology of Education / Overview
Year of entry: 2018
- Degree awarded
- 12 months FT 27 months PT
- Entry requirements
A good honours degree (minimum 2:1), or the overseas equivalent, in any discipline is required. Candidates who do not meet the minimum 2:1 entry requirement must demonstrate evidence of ability to study at master's level (e.g. by having already completed a master's degree in another discipline).
Please submit the following documents with your application:
- Copies of official degree certificates and transcripts of your previous study, showing the subjects taken and grades obtained. If these documents are in languages other than English please provide official translations.
- Two written references, signed by the referee and on official headed paper
- A personal statement (one side of A4 paper) detailing why you wish to study the course, your experiences, what you can bring to the course and any other information that you see as relevant to your application
- Your CV
- Copies of English Language Certification, e.g. IELTS, TOEFL or Pearson test score report
Applicants may be invited to interview before a final decision is made so that their suitability for the course can be assessed. This is likely to be for applicants who do not have any previous experience of psychology and/or education or whose personal statement does not provide enough information about their motivation to study at this level. For overseas students we will try to arrange interview through Skype or other media.
- How to apply
The deadline for applications is the 31st August 2018; later applications are considered at our discretion. Please note that we receive a very high number of applications so the course may be closed to new applications before the final deadline given.
