Hello Everyone

I am currently considering a few universities for a psychology conversion course online because I work full time and it would be great to get some advice(please)

The universities in mind are Coventry, Northumbria, Derby & Nottingham*

Their courses are all accredited by the BPS and my goal is to become a counselling/clinical psychologist(strong preference for counselling psychologist)

However I just looked at the BPS website this morning and discovered they've accredited an Msc Psychology, Health & Wellbeing for the University of Wolverhampton (Excerpt: Accreditation - This programme is accredited for all intakes from 2021/2022. From the 2021/2022 intake this degree confers eligibility for the Graduate Basis for Chartered Membership. Structure - Conversion Course)

I am really interested in this, having read a bit of the course modules BUT their website hasn't been updated to reflect this information from the BPS

The fees are extremely affordable compared to the others listed above BUT I have a few concerns about university rankings(not sure it really matters if the course is accredited though).

It would be great to get some helpful suggestions with reference to psychology conversion courses online, university rankings and accreditation

Thanks

University rankings don't really matter all that much for a conversion course, these courses have to contain pretty much the same content to provide the same foundations for further study. Have you emailed Wolverhampton to enquire about the course?

thanks for your response...

I did email wolverhampton and the enrolment advisor stated the course was accredited and their website will be updated shortly.
You are quite right with reference to the conversion course - most of the modules are pretty much the same with all the universities I have checked apart from 2 separate psychology conversion courses in the university of Edinburgh/Wolverhampton - Msc Psychology of Mental Health (conversion) both accredited by the BPS

Thanks again for taking the time to respond

Hi cjayeula77, I just wondered whether you ended up doing the MSc Psychology of Mental Health & Wellbeing at Wolverhampton? If so, how's it going?
I have been offered a place to start in November but was wondering the same as you about university rankings. Good to know it doesn't matter too much for a conversion.
