UCL Psychological Sciences MSc conversion 2021Watch this thread
Have you applied to other conversion courses at other unis? What background are you coming from?
Need more help on going postgrad?
Hi, I plan to start a part time psychology conversion MSc accredited by BPS in September, with the view to then applying for a doctorate in Educational Psychology which is the training route to become an EP. I am currently trying to work out the best conversion course to apply for which would put me in the best position for getting onto the competitive doctorate training programme. I would love to study at UCL and I know they also run one of the Educational Psychology doctorate programme. I am wondering whether it is best to study my psychology conversion at UCL if that would act in my favour in terms of getting onto the doctorate? I am a little unsure which UCL course to apply for however, the MSc psychological sciences conversion, or the MSc Child Development. Both seem to be accredited by BPS, but I am finding it difficult to determine which would stand me in best stead when pursuing EP doctorate training. I am a primary school teacher without a background in psychology. (My undergraduate degree is in Philosophy and IR, and I have experience in mental health, PSHE and mindfulness.) I would be so grateful if anyone has had any experience with either course, or could point me in the direction of finding out which to apply for! UCL also asks for an application fee, which rules out applying for both.
I will not be attending UCL as honestly I have since changed what I want to do, but best of luck to everyone! I hope you all get the outcome you are hoping for and I'm sure you'll all make excellent psychologists, counsellors, therapists (or whatever you want to be!) in the future.
Hi everyone, I applied in late February and I was wondering if anyone who'd applied then had heard back? Equally if anyone who got a response would be able to offer any guidance on how long it took/if they got in/what their credentials were that'd be incredible! Thank you so much
Fingers crossed everyone
Likewise, I applied near the end of the deadline, and now they keep sending emails that my application is being processed, and that it will take 6 weeks until we hear back.
Fingers crossed everyone
Six weeks after your application became complete (including both references). But my application was fully submitted on 14th January and I only received an offer end of March for MSc in Psychology of Education!
That’s so incredible... I feel more nervous now....
