Applicants need one of the following: BSc or BA Psychology with a 2.1 or above, or a BSc/ BA in a closely related discipline (e.g. health, social, community care) with a 2.1 or above. Applications from students who have achieved a 2.2 degree will be considered by the course leadership team. Where there is evidence that at least two of the following criteria have been met, you may be offered a place on the course: work experience in a health-related setting, an enthusiasm for health psychology, and an ability to achieve a 2.1 within your undergraduate degree (for example, transcripts reveal a 2.1 in key undergraduate curriculum areas such as research methods). You may also be able to claim credit points which can reduce the amount of time it takes to complete your qualification at Sheffield Hallam. All applicants are required to provide two satisfactory references (normally one of these will be an academic reference) and a personal statement. If you do not have GBC you can do a BPS accredited conversion course. We offer an MSc in Psychology that would give you eligibility for GBC, provided you achieve an overall mark of at least 50 per cent and pass your dissertation. You should be enthusiastic about psychology and have a good understanding of the British Psychological Society's core areas.
