Hi there,

I'm going to be starting my first year at RHUL in a couple of weeks doing MSci Psychology but I'm a bit confused.

Firstly, is the course BPS accredited. I know the first three years are but how about the last year?

Also, how do the classes run in the fourth year? Do they run separate MSci classes or do you merge with the MSc classes depending on which area you decide to specialise in. For example, if I wanted to do my fourth year in clinical psychology would I join the MSc Clinical Psychology course classes?

I was also wondering is the MSci course the equivalent to a BSc + MSc? Do employers/academics value the MSci the same as the value a MSc? And can you go straight from a MSci to a PhD?

I would really appreciate any information. Thanks

Hi Ginge999,

We can't wait to have you join us on campus!

At the moment we are working towards having our MSci Psychology become a BPS accredited course.

The MSci differs slightly to an MSc and therefore you won't have any joint classes with MSc students. Studying an MSci gives you the opportunity to gain a more in-depth understanding of the research and statistics within Psychology than you would get with the BSc. With regards to your eligibility to move on to a PhD course, this would depend on the funding body as each one has different requirements. Our Department of Psychology will be able to assist you with looking into this once you know what you would like to pursue at a PhD level.

I hope this helps, but please let me know if you have any other questions!

Susana
