I would highly recommend anyone who is looking to do a psychology conversion course to apply to Sheffield University.
The MSc Psychology and Education conversion course at Sheffield University was the highlight of my time at university. The course is well thought out, with brilliant lecturers who are passionate about their respective fields and advancing the education of their students.
Because lectures are held as intimate classroom sessions, rather than big lecture groups, it is easy to form relationships with all your classmates as well as university staff.
I found our lecturers, especially course director Dr. Anna Weighall, incredibly helpful and accommodating throughout the course.
Lecturers are also available to answer any course related questions, either by mail or through the online group forum which is shared with all the students on the course. You are also assigned a personal tutor.
One of my favourite aspects of the course was the timetable and the way they handled evaluations.

Psychology and Education (Conversion)
Sessions are limited to three times a week, including one practical session that allows you to discuss lecture materials (and rehearse practical assessments) in a more informal setting.
As each module was concluding, we submitted our work (usually an essay, but sometimes also through more practical evaluations). That way we only focused on one topic at the time, and our grade in the module was determined by effort rather than “a good exam day”.
Since completing the MSc Psychology and Education course, I have progressed to a psychologist training programme. I feel confident my time in Sheffield has prepared me for the upcoming study, role and responsibilities.
Thus, I would highly recommend anyone who is looking to do a psychology conversion course to apply to Sheffield University.”
