I got a 2:1 in my undergrad psychology degree from the University of York. I have received offers for masters in Health Psychology from both the University of Nottingham and Northumbria University.
I love Newcastle as a place, however I know that Nottingham is seen as a much better university. The course fees are over £1000 cheaper at Northumbria too. I have visited Nottingham for their open day and really liked the sound of the course, but I am yet to visit Northumbria. Both courses are accredited by the BPS as Stage 1 for chartered membership, but I'm worried that I'd be less likely to get a job/work on my career goals by choosing what people seem to think is a 'less reputable' university.
Do you have any suggestions or thoughts on how I can decide on which offer to accept?
Thanks so much!

On the whole, in Psychology, the university you go to does not matter. BPS accreditation is what you need and any course that has it will provide what you need to progress.
No one I have met cares at all where anyone did any of their degrees. You can never account for an individual's biases and preferences, so there's no point in trying to.
Check out this thread, read Spatch's post particularly, they shortlist for the Clinical Psychology doctorate:

Doesn't really matter I did my Stage 1 at John Mooores University
