Application queries re Cardiff University MSc Psychology (conversion)

Hi,
I'm just starting the application process for Cardiff Uni's Psychology Conversion Masters, and was wondering if anyone could shed some light on a few things.
Firstly, is there an interview? I can't seem to find this info anywhere on their site.

Also wondering if they require an academic reference... at some point? It says you don't need one when I started the application yesterday but wasn't sure If they then request if a place is offered? Just wanted to know as I'd need to get the ball rolling on that soon if so as I'm a mature student and would probably need to meet up with some old professors.

I was also wondering if any prospective/current/alumni students know where I could find the reading list for the course?

Any insight/advice much appreciated, ty!

Hi! So, I am currently an offer holder of the MSc Psych conversion course at Cardiff for the Sep 24 intake.

Rest assured, there is no interview and no need for a reference. I would suggest to make your personal statement as dapper as possible!!

Hoping to meet you soon, then!

Hi there,

The course listings on the Cardiff University website usually provides you with all the information you need for the application process (they wouldn't scare you with a surprise interview!). So, I would say there isn't an interview or a reference required 🙂

Unfortunately as I am a BSc psychology student, I won't be able to answer the last question, since we have different reading lists. If you had any other questions about studying psychology at Cardiff though, I'd be happy to answer them.
