Which postgraduate path should I follow? Watch
Hi everyone, I'm an Italian student who studies psychology at the University of Padua in Italy , and if all goes well I will graduate next year in my three-year degree (in the UK corresponds to a bachelor ) . I'm planning to continue my education in the UK and applying to a Master degree , but after several researches conducted on the web I decided to ask students of this forum who actually live in UK if they can give me more concrete informations about the most recommended universities for the postgraduate taught courses. Thanks everyone for the answers!
Well it depends what kind of course you want to do and what your end goal is? In addition to become a professional psychologist (e.g. a clinical/educational/neuro) then you need a undergraduate degree that is accredited by the BPS - i'm not sure how/if there is any way to get accreditation as an overseas student.
I've read in many official web pages (kings,ucl,warwick and many more) that a 2:1 corresponds to a minum of 106/110 of the italian degree and I'm pretty sure that it's possible to convert the courses with the BPS (many italian students have applied in this way)I'd like to pursue the clinical psychologist career, I'm aware that is a competitive and difficult path, therefore I'm looking for a Msc which is linked to the main clinical psychology aspects..Warwick and Swansea offer two interesting programs ("Clinical application of psychology" and Abnormal and Clinical Psychology"..Does anyone has any suggestions? Are there other programs I should consider?
