Hi all,

I have got an offer for both Developmental and Educational Psychology MSc and Child Development MSc courses at Institute of Education, University of London.
The Developmental and Eductional P. is not accredited by the BPS, but the Child D. doesn't sound professional enough, though that's accredited. I am planning to work in America later on - do you think that the accreditation of my MSc is relevant this case?
Could you tell me more about differences of prospects after finishing the courses?

Thanks!

Accreditation is relevant if you haven't already got a BPS accredited psychology degree. A lot of people may (I thought about it myself) do the Developmental and Educational Psychology MSc to help get onto the educational psychology doctorate, for example.

Hey dont know if you already know but if you want to work in america as a psychologist you will have to do your phd there as they dont recognise the english phd and to do that you will have to do an exam (GRE), in order to get accepted to a uni there.

Hiya!

I got the offer for MSc Child Development at IOE as well, if you have a look at the core modules of CD, they are completely the same as MSc Psycho of Edu. As the CD is accredited by the BPS, I would go for CD.
