MSc Psychology and Education (Conversion)
MSc Psychology and Education (Conversion) alumna, Abbie Courtney-Smith, shares why the course was an excellent step towards her dream job as an Educational Psychologist.

I am an aspiring Educational Psychologist and this course gave me the perfect knowledge, experience and tools for that dream job of mine. I learnt so much on the course and studied many modules I enjoyed such as, Neuroscience, Social Psychology and my personal favourite Difference, Disability and Diversity.

I am currently a Primary school SEN Teaching Assistant where I use the knowledge and skills from the course in my career, providing SEN interventions and conducting reading assessments for children.

I particularly enjoyed conducting my research dissertation on a subject close to my heart, and was fully supported by my research supervisor and professors. The staff on the course are very knowledgeable and experienced. Once completing the course I was able to join the British Psychological Psychology (BPS as a Graduate Member and this has allowed me to access opportunities such as BPS talks, conferences, newsletters and more.

I am extremely thankful for having the opportunity to be on the course and would recommend it to anyone with a keen interest in Psychology and Education, especially if you are wanting a career in Educational Psychology.
