    It took mine about a month and a half. I spoke to a Surrey rep in December and I *think* she said it'd normally take a month

    I'm an international student so I honestly can't tell you much about the uni, awfully sorry about that. I've applied for aerospace engineering, and have applied to Glasgow and Manchester as well (got rejected by Southampton)

    Hi there,

    According to the course page on the website (http://www.surrey.ac.uk/postgraduate...sychology-2017) you do need a Bachelors in Psychology to be eligible for the MSc in Occupational and Organisational Psychology:

    "A first or 2.1 honours degree (or equivalent qualification) in psychology, paired with an interest, understanding and / or experience of work, organisational, and business issues as evident from the application form."

    Hope this helps!

    All the best,
    Ashley

    Ashley, wanted this clarification- Is an undergraduate degree in psychology considered a prerequisite. I have four years of Work experience in HR. I would like to know if this would be a qualifier for rejecting a student's candidature to the Msc Occupational psychology course. Am currently pursuing MA Psychology.

    Hi Swarna,

    In this case, I would recommend contacting the Admissions team directly as they will be able to advise on whether you would be able to do the MSc taking your MA and previous work experience into account. You can give them a ring on +44(0)1483 682222 or email [email protected]

    Hi Ashley,
    Thanks for the information!! But I wonder how long roughly does it take for the PhD program 2017/18 applicants to be notified after the online application. By checking the status of application on daily basis as per request and finding no any changes apart from the favorite decision status [Pending – application being considered ], is somehow painful
    Kind regards,
    Iwambi.

    Hi Hershelle,

    Thanks for your message.

    I'm not entirely sure how long it takes for the team to process PhD studentship applications... it likely depends on the volume of applications they've received and how quickly things like references come through.

    If it's been more than 6-8 weeks, I'd advise emailing or ringing our Admissions team to ask. If you provide them with your URN (found on all correspondence from the university to you) and your full name, they'll be able to pull up your application and tell you what stage it's at. You can email [email protected] or call +44(0)1484 682222

    Hope this helps!

    Thanks. It's too soon for me, I guess. I will check after a few weeks.

    You can still ring them up to check if you like, but they might just say they're going through each application in chronological order
