Entry requirements

Entry requirements

Entry requirements for UK students:Applicants from Psychology backgrounds will usually be required to have at least a 2:1 Honours degree in Psychology, which is recognised by the British Psychological Society (BPS) and have Graduate Basis for Chartership (GBC) with the BPS. A 2:2 honours degree in Psychology may be accepted if the applicant has relevant work experience or can demonstrate an ability to study at Level 7 through the completion of other post-graduate study. Applicants with a Joint Honours degree in Psychology or with an undergraduate degree that contains at least 60 credits of Psychology may also be considered.

Applicants from non-Psychology backgrounds will be required to have a 2:1 or above honours degree in an area allied to Psychology or an equivalent qualification. In addition, those applicants with non-GBC qualifications, with lower academic qualifications (e.g. a 2:2 classification) and experience, or those with non-Psychology qualifications in an area allied to Psychology entry will normally be invited to an interview with the programme leader, or nominated representative, to establish suitability for and commitment to the programme. For overseas students this will be conducted over the telephone or by Skype if possible.

Entry requirements for EU/international students:Applicants with overseas qualifications are strongly advised to establish the UK equivalence of their qualifications. Within this requirement, it will be important to ascertain the ability to speak and write using the English language. Due to the demands of postgraduate study a minimum International English Language Test System (IELTS) score of 6.0 (with a minimum of 6.0 in each component) is required for entry to the programme for non-native English speakers. Before applying students may seek confirmation of equivalency by contacting the National Academic Recognition Information Centre (NARIC) on 0870 9904088, and writing to Oriel House, Oriel Road, Cheltenham, Glos. GL50 1XP. Evidence of equivalence (written verification) will be required on application for entry on this programme. A fee is payable for the NARIC service.

What students think about University of Derby

    Arun Sudhakar MSc International Spa Management

    Testimonial from Arun Sudhakar MSc International Spa Management, student at University of Derby

    “Any student who really wants to progress with their learning will not be disappointed when joining the University of Derby. I would recommend all ambitious students interested in the spa industry to come and join the MA International Spa Management course for a brighter future!

     I really enjoyed studying in Buxton. It is a very calm and beautiful place where I have been successful in building good relations with the local people. I will be so sad when I leave because of the memories of some great times I have had here. I feel blessed with the knowledge and experience I got from my tutors, and have enjoyed each and every moment.”

    Testimonial from Sumedha Rambukwella MSc Marketing Management, student at University of Derby

    Sumedha found that modules were covered in great detail; smaller classes are beneficial because they enable the students to have the lecturer’s personal attention. “Lecturers at Derby are extremely supportive and very friendly and my class mates are truly international. Being exposed to various cultures here in Derby while studying has already helped me and it will continue to help me when I start working in an international environment.”
