For Psychology degrees at Masters level, programmes that are clinical psychology say you must be a graduate with a British Psychological Society (BPS) recognised degree in psychology. But most departments offer loads of different psychology degrees, like Applied Psychology, or Social Psychology etc. The say that they will accept any relevant social science degree at 2:1 or above for these courses. But whether that means business - is anyone's guess. Surrey claim this for some of the MScs.

Yeah there are definately courses. Sussex offer an MSc in Experimental Psychology which is for non psychology graduates. It confers BPS recognition on graduation and can be used as a conversion course for those wishing to practice psychology in the future (clinical, educational etc).

I have a degree in another discipline but am now doing a Graduate Diploma in Psychology which upon completion provides the graduate basis for registration (GBR) with the BPS. This GBR status is something you need if you wish to pursue a career in psychology. Basically, my course is the equivalent of doing the three-year undergraduate course in one year.
Perhaps you might want to look into doing a Grad Dip as it provides you with a good grounding in psychology (if it's something you haven't studied before). You can find more info on the BPS website
