The MSc provides students with the unique
opportunity to study developmental psychology across both childhood
and adolescence. Drawing on the research interests and expertise of
the teaching team the MSc will expose students to contemporary
issues in developmental psychology. The team has links with local
child and youth based organisations and students will be able to
engage with professionals working in related fields.
What qualifications do I need?
Applicants will normally have a 2:1 in Psychology
or a closely related discipline, although in cases where
exceptional performance on the final year project, mitigating
circumstances, or relevant employment can be demonstrated,
applicants may be considered who have a 2:2. Applicants whose
first degree is not in psychology will be accepted on a
case-by-case basis to ensure that they have covered sufficient
levels of psychology and research methods during their first
degree. A satisfactory DBS Enhanced Disclosure is also
required as a condition of acceptance onto the course. Applicants
whose first language is not English should have IELTS at grade 6.5
or above (including a minimum of 6.5 in the writing component) or
another acceptable English Language qualification.
