Does anyone have experience with applying to and/or embarking on a postgraduate course in a subject different from your undergraduate course? I'm wondering in particular about UK university undergraduate and postgraduate programs, because in the U.S. it's not quite such a big deal since bachelor's programs can be quite broad and you can take tons of classes outside your major. Since UK universities can be more specialized I was just wondering if it's at all possible.
Like, what if you studied philosophy as an undergraduate and then wanted to study the psychology of belief? Are more outlandish combinations than that possible?
I noticed at least on the Oxford website on the page for Math and Philosophy (http://www.ox.ac.uk/admissions/under...ics_and_4.html) it mentions under "Careers" that one student is studying psychology at Columbia now, but of course Columbia isn't a UK university.

I came across severral Masters in Psychology that require a background in Social Sciences (e.g. LSE), some that require previous knowledge of Psychology and also Masters without any previous knowledge necessary (e.g. UCL Decision Sciences). It depends on the programme and therefore you wil need to explore each programme's entry-requirements in-depth. You might want to consider LSE's Psychogy programme for instance.
