Hi, I’m studying my a levels ( psych, fine art and english lit) currently, I want to do an art undergrad course, is it possible to then do a masters in psychology? Is there extra things I will need to do? Thanks

No I don’t think so, I’m sorry, at least not at top universities. For a psych masters you’re required to have certain knowledge. It may be possible to do a specific one year conversion masters course, however, so you should look into that.

You could do a conversion MSc in psychology, which is what some people do when they didn't do BSc Psychology, but then decide they want a career in psychology.

Ah thank you that’s super helpful , would that be integrated within the masters or would I have to do it separately ? Thank you

It's a masters in itself, but not specialised like some others would be. It is basically designed to fit the learning a BSc in Psychology would give you into a 1-year MSc course. If you wanted to then do a more focused/specialised masters course, you would need to do that afterwards.

Hi Amelia, there are some great MSc Psychology programs out there (I have just graduated from mine and knew very little about Psychology before I started). The key thing is that it is accredited by the BPS. Here is a link to the Arden one for you to have a look at https://arden.ac.uk/our-courses/post...psychology-bps
