Psychology Postgraduate information

On postgraduate level a number of degrees are offered. On Honours level (the degree directly following an undergraduate degree) one degree with an academic focus (BA (Hons) Psychology) is offered.

Two postgraduate degrees with a research-focus are offered, namely the MA (Research Psychology) and the PhD (Psychology). Both these degrees require the submission of a research proposal and the writing of an academic document (dissertation or thesis).
