    Bit of a weird one maybe but i just got my degree in criminology and i was thinking of doing a masters conversion course in psychology... However I came across some info stating I could do an undergraduate degree in psychology instead and then proceed to do my masters afterwards? Would I be able to do this & does anyone have any experience with anything similar? Any advice/info would be awesome.

    Why would you want to do another degree or a psychology conversion course?

    I don't think you can get any student finance for a second undergraduate degree or the conversion course so think carefully about it. Only do it if you're sure you want to become a chartered psychologist of some type. Check the requirements for the conversion courses too cos some want some psychology modules in your first degree

    There's absolutely no advantage to having multiple undergraduate degrees, and given that they aren't funded (no student loan for them), it would be both cheaper and better academically to do a conversion course.
