MSc Psychology gains BPS accreditation

Released: 27.10.20

Marjon’s MSc Psychology programme has gained industry accreditation from the British Psychological Society (BPS). The award indicates that the programme and its team facilitate a high standard of psychology education.

Dr Hazel Bending, programme lead said: “This is a fantastic achievement for Marjon, the programme and our students. It means that our finalists are able to apply for the Graduate Membership of the BPS.”

The graduate membership is required to gain entrance to the various training programmes to become a fully Chartered Psychologist.

The degree offers postgraduate students the opportunity to develop their career, by studying the application of psychology in the workplace. As a conversion programme, students do not need a background in psychology to complete the course.

MSc Psychology graduate, Dawn Geary commented: “I’ve really enjoyed learning about the different aspects of psychology, from leadership and identity through to neuropsychology. This course has made me appreciate how different disorders can impact on people’s lives. I’ve also been able to develop my critical analysis and research skills.”

The programme sits within Marjon’s group of BPS accredited courses. These are: BSc Psychology, BSc Sport and Exercise Psychology, MSc Applied Sport Psychology and now MSc Psychology.

The MSc Psychology degree will give students the transferable skills they need for employment. It is the first step towards careers in educational, forensic, clinical, counselling or sport related psychology.

The next intake for the programme is September 2021. For more information please contact Dr Hazel Bending at
