Hi - and sorry for another question regarding MSc Psychology! I'm considering an online BPS accredited course. I have a master in a different area (not in UK), so I am a little worried about how truly difficult this can be for me, English not being my first language and lacking any scientific background. I'm also worried about the workload. Has anyone done the conversion while working? And can anyone share their experience, especially regarding assessments and group-works? I'm talking with a few different universities but they all seem vague regarding this aspect. I would like to know how much collaborative and practical assignments there are. Any insight? TIA

Thank you for the reassurance. I'm actually thinking that I'd probably need more hours than those indicated, because I feel quite slow, especially in writing. Do you have any idea of how many group works and peer-interactions there are in an online course? I can't find any information and the admission teams were extremely vague.
Thank you again for taking the time to write, have a lovely evening

I have applied to Derby, Northumbria, Brunel and Manchester Met.
So far I received one offer and waiting for the other ones to make my decision, but they all seem quite similar to me to be honest (modules, structure and cost wise)

Hi ☺️ I’m applying to Manchester Met tomorrow - finishing my application then. Just wondering was your reply from them? Bit worried I’ve left it too late! Has anyone ever heard of doing an online HDip in psychology and working full time in the field?

Hi, I haven't received any reply from them yet. I think in my case it takes time for the admission team to check my qualifications as I did all my previous studies abroad. Fingers crossed for both of us!

Hi Sophie,
Thank you for your message I am not in any rush and I totally understand everything is a little more complicated these days. I'm waiting patiently, no worries.
Many thanks and best wishes!

Hi elenneli

I am in the exact same situation as you! I am looking to do a conversion MSc in Psychology online and part-time, and my background is also from outside the UK and in a different discipline. English is also my second language.

I haven't applied to any course yet (really should start) as I am really not sure how to choose the right university. It is hard to get a clear understanding of the way the modules are delivered as you said, especially via distance learning, and I don't know enough about the different universities reputations either.

What would you like to do after this course? I don't know myself yet, so I'd like to be sure I am getting the right "foundational" education in case I want to try get a doctorate later..

The courses I am considering applying to are: Manchester Met, Uni of Glasgow, Uni of Leceister, Uni of Derby, Robert Gordon.

Any insights from anyone?
