The MSc in Psychology Conversion course is a unique master’s conversion programme in collaboration with a state UK University, delivered and assessed in the Greek language.
The programme has been designed to cover BPS criteria for GPC (Graduate Basis for Chartership). It consists of compulsory modules that cover the 7 areas of psychology (development, cognitive, social psychology, psychobiology, history and philosophy of psychology, individual difference, research methods) according to BPS and according to which all accredited psychology undergraduate programmes are designed. It offers the opportunity to graduates of different disciplines to get to know the science of psychology and to emphasise through their research dissertation on the field and the topic that like and prefer, therefore, it is ideal for graduates who would like to switch careers and move into psychology, but who don't hold an undergraduate psychology degree.

The aims of the programme are:
To equip graduates with knowledge and skills in order to follow a successful, responsible and useful career in various fields of applied psychology

To support the individual student’s learning style who comes from different academic backgrounds.
