BPP University School of Health launches new psychology programmes for postgraduates
Two new postgraduate psychology programmes have been launched by BPP University School of Health using innovative delivery mechanisms to engage students and promote profession-centred learning.
The University’s Department of Psychology have created programmes in MSc Health Psychology which offers postgraduate education with specialist knowledge and skills; and the MSc Psychology (Conversion) particularly suited to mature graduates who want a career in, or closely related to, Psychology.
Dr Sokratis Dinos, Director of Psychology Programmes at BPP University School of Health, said: “Students rate us highly for our innovative delivery combination of online pre-recorded lectures that can be accessed at any time and interactive small group workshops where the knowledge gained from the lectures can be applied using real-world scenarios.
“In particular, approximately 70 per cent of our contact hours are based on practical workshops which are specifically designed with a strong emphasis on professional skills in a range of applied areas and professional contexts including NHS, local authorities, academia, commercial, and consultancy companies.”
Students will also have the opportunity to apply for research internships in the department’s research projects or complete their dissertation within one of the research groups including: The Health and Illness Research Team (HIRT), The Political and Social Psychology Research Team (PSPRT) and The Cognitive Psychology Research Team (CPRT).
If applicants are domestic or international graduates who want a career in, or closely related to, psychology but have insufficient credits in psychology from their first degree, completion of the MSc Psychology (Conversion) programme will offer them the Graduate Basis for Chartered membership (GBC) with the British Psychological Society (BPS).
Our MSc Health Psychology programme has been developed with the Stage 2 doctoral competencies required by the British Psychological Society firmly in view, thereby supporting the students whose ambitions are to become fully-chartered psychologists and registered with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC).
For those students who wish to pursue careers in allied professions, this foundation in key competencies will provide an excellent springboard and competitive edge.
Our programmes are available in September 2016 at our desirable BPP University city centre location in London Waterloo.
