Admission to the course requires a level of psychological knowledge and skills which is normally provided by an accredited Honours degree in Psychology. Those that do not hold a degree in psychology require:
- evidence of practical experience in a relevant area;
- evidence of a relevant undergraduate degree with research methods training (e.g. business, science, human resources) at the level of 2:2 or above;
- evidence of particular achievements at undergraduate level which indicate strengths in occupational psychology.
You will be asked to complete an application form and provide evidence of your degree classification. You will also be required to provide two references, at least one of which should include comments on your academic ability.
Applicants whose first language is not English should have an IELTS of 6.5 overall, with no component lower than 5.5. Pre-sessional English is available if required.
