Firstly, do you wish to work in the UK when you're qualified? And you're wishing to become a research psychologist?
A masters degree usually involves writing a thesis so you would likely have that experience with a UK masters. Yes, they can be expensive, so you need to know exactly what you're planning to do with it afterwards. If you wish to work in the UK afterwards, your previous qualifications should preferably be BPS accredited, but you can do a conversion course to be accepted, as you need to become a chartered psychologist that is registered with the BPS to practice as one.
This page will give you information on the MRes in Psychology. And this page will tell you in general terms about Master's degrees in the UK - I'd recommend browsing the website in general as they have a lot of clear and useful information.

Hey thank you so much for your words and help.
I was hoping to use this course to get a PhD later on . In Uk or elsewhere in Europe. I did not have a dissertation in either Bachelor's or Master's . I was hoping to study this course to both make my application strong and find research jobs in my country or anywhere in Europe.
