Hi guys, so I'm thinking about doing a psychology conversion course next year after I've graduated from Nottingham University doing American and Canadian history, literature and culture. I've always been interested in Psychology but I think I lacked the confidence to apply to study it at University, and by the time I'd found out I'd achieved A* in it at A2 I thought it was too late. I've recently learned that you can do a conversion course in psychology recognised by the bps, but I've noticed that most of them are either Msc or PGDip.
From what I can gather, the difference is the Msc requires a dissertation and the PGDip does not, is that correct? In that case, what are the benefits of going the extra mile and doing an Msc instead of a PGDip, is it worth it? What would my options be like after completing a PGDip vs an Msc? Would the Msc be too difficult not having studied Psychology in 4 years by then?
Thanks so much for any advice!

heya im looking at the two courses as well. what i saw on the course profile is that pgdip required to have obtained 60credits from psychology before entering, not too sure about msc psych conversion though. i have emailed them about that but havent heard from them yet. let me get back to you when i get the answers!
