MSc Health Psychology / Entry requirements

Year of entry: 2019

Academic entry qualification overview

We require an honours degree (minimum Upper Second) with evidence of attaining a minimum of an Upper Second in all BSc research method units and dissertation, or overseas equivalent, in psychology.

For the MSc to be recognised by the BPS as the Stage 1 qualification for becoming a Health Psychologist, you need to hold Graduate Basis for Chartership (GBC).

You can join the MSc without holding GBC, but for the MSc to be recognised as a BPS-accredited Stage 1 qualification, you will need to gain GBC. This can be completed later. See the BPS website for more information.

English language

International students must demonstrate English proficiency through a secure and approved testing system.

We ask for English language proof if you are from non-majority English speaking countries (a list of majority English speaking countries, as defined by the UK Home Office, can be found here).

Specifically, we require a minimum of:

  • IELTS: 7.0, including 7.0 in the written section
  • TOEFL: 100, including 25 in the written section.
