our Psychology MSc course introduction video transcript

My name is Dr Gulcan Garip and I’m proud to be part of the growing number of passionate academics, who teach, supervise, and support students from all over the world studying on the successful, online MSc Psychology and Postgraduate Diploma in Psychology programmes offered by the University of Derby Online Learning.

These programmes were one of the first online provisions to be accredited by the British Psychological Society, which is the professional body for psychology and psychologists in the UK. By successfully completing one of these programmes you will be eligible for Graduate Basis for Chartered Membership, which is required to gain entrance to the various postgraduate and training programmes to become a fully Chartered Psychologist.

We believe that considering to pursue a psychology education should not be limited by where you live or whether you’re in employment. These conversion courses are designed for those who have studied a non-psychology degree at undergraduate or postgraduate level, and are interested in a career in Psychology or for those who have had a lifelong interest towards the field.

The first module you’ll study with us will be an introductory overview of the field and will equip you with basic research methods as well as conceptual and historical issues in psychology and then you’ll cover the core areas to help you develop the skills and knowledge to undertake your own psychology research project under the supervision of an academic.

As academic lead for the programmes, I will be supporting you throughout your studies, alongside our academic team with expertise in social, biological, cognitive, developmental, individual differences, research methods, as well as specialist areas such as health, sport, language, and positive psychology.

You will be allocated a personal tutor who will oversee your progress throughout the duration of your studies as well as the support of a dedicated online learning advisor who will help with administrative matters.

Some students have gone on to publish their research and our academics are research active but we’re here first and foremost to provide you with an excellent online student experience.

Let’s explore what opportunities a qualification in psychology can open for you.
