In terms of career guidance you are best discussing your progression route with someone from the tech industry, I would assume there are stronger routes.

However, if you did decide to do an MSc in Psychology you can do one 100% online with a course registered with the British Psychological Society at Arden University - there are also blended options available in Manchester, London, and a few other locations. For an unbiased review check out their report with the QAA and also their TEF rating - two reports readily available online.

Hello,

I’m a current MSc Psychology (Conversion) student at the University of Surrey. My UG degree was in Modern Languages (French and Spanish).

I love that the conversion programme brings together a diverse group of students with varying experiences, allowing for a rich learning environment in which everyone can contribute something new.

Although I am not working in the tech industry, I can say that the programme provides a great foundation in psychology and human behaviour, as well as research practices that may be relevant to product research or behaviour research in the tech industry. The course opens up a variety of job prospects in a variety of industries, including roles such as user experience researcher, product researcher, a behavioural scientist in tech companies, and data analyst roles.

If you have any questions about the programme at Surrey, feel free to ask, and I wish you the best of luck with your studies!

Thanks,
