Y posibilrwydd o gyflymu eich gyrfa ym maes seicoleg ar ôl cyflawni gradd amherthnasol

Mae’r rhaglen hon yn eich galluogi i astudio MSc mewn Seicoleg ar ôl cwblhau gradd israddedig amherthnasol.

Psychology is the systematic and scientific study of the most complex and fascinating of nature’s creations – the human mind. It explores some of humanity’s biggest questions and strives to understand behaviour and how the mind works.

On this one-year programme, you will be provided with all the necessary skills to begin a career in psychology. You will study psychology from a scientific standpoint, with an emphasis on its social, cognitive and biological aspects, whilst developing your quantitative and qualitative research skills. The programme is a conversion course so you will not need any prior knowledge of psychology to apply.

Teaching is research led, which means you will be taught by psychologists who have delivered significant advances in knowledge and improvements in quality of life across the world.

This programme is accredited by the British Psychological Society (BPS). Successful completion provides eligibility for the Graduate Basis for Chartered Membership of the British Psychological Society.

Achrediadau

The course is accredited by the British Psychological Society and so offers a way into careers in psychology that require BPS registration. Therefore, the course will be beneficial to those already working in psychology-informed fields or who already have some knowledge of psychology but who wish to pursue a career that requires BPS registration. However, it can also provide a first step into psychology for motivated and high achieving graduates without a background in psychology.

Joe
Cefais amser wrth fy modd ar y cwrs MSc Seicoleg. Roedd y pynciau yr oeddem yn eu hastudio yn hynod ddiddorol, ac roedd y staff bob amser wrth law i helpu. Rhoddodd y sgiliau a enillais ar y cwrs gyfle i mi fynd ymlaen i wneud PhD; cyfle na fyddwn wedi'i gael fel arall. Rwy'n wirioneddol argymell y cwrs hwn i unrhyw un sydd â diddordeb mewn seicoleg ac sydd eisiau deall, mewn rhagor o ddyfnder, sut mae'r meddwl dynol yn gweithio.

Strwythur y cwrs

This is a one year full-time course that starts in the Autumn. You will take taught courses in the first two semesters. In the final semester (Summer) you will take a placement and complete a dissertation.

Mae'r modiwlau a ddangosir yn esiampl o'r cwricwlwm arferol. Byddant yn cael eu hadolygu cyn blwyddyn academaidd 2022/23. Bydd y modiwlau terfynol yn cael eu cyhoeddi erbyn mis Medi 2022.

Yn y semester cyntaf, byddwch yn dysgu am graidd academaidd Seicoleg, fel seicoleg annormal, seicoleg ddatblygiadol, a seicoleg gymdeithasol. Yn yr ail semester, byddwch yn cwblhau eich hyfforddiant sylfaenol ac yn cynnal eich prosiect ymchwil newydd eich hun. Yn ystod misoedd yr haf, byddwch yn ymgymryd â lleoliad proffesiynol 12-wythnos lle byddwch yn profi bywyd fel seicolegydd proffesiynol ac yn dysgu’r sgiliau sy’n gysylltiedig â hynny.

Mae'r Brifysgol wedi ymrwymo i ddarparu amrywiaeth eang o opsiynau modiwl lle’n bosibl. Ond byddwch yn ymwybodol er y byddwn yn gwneud pob ymdrech i gynnig dewis, gall hyn gael ei gyfyngu mewn rhai amgylchiadau. Y rheswm am hyn yw'r ffaith mai dim ond nifer cyfyngedig o leoedd sydd ar gael ar rai modiwlau, a gaiff eu dyrannu ar sail y cyntaf i'r felin. Mae'n ofynnol i fodiwlau eraill sicrhau isafswm nifer o fyfyrwyr cyn gallu eu cynnal, er mwyn gwneud yn siŵr y gellir cyflwyno addysg o ansawdd priodol. Gall modiwlau gael eu cyfyngu oherwydd gwrthdaro yn yr amserlen hefyd, ac er bod y Brifysgol yn ymdrechu i amharu cyn lleied â phosibl ar eich dewis, byddai'n syniad da i chi ofyn am gyngor gan yr Ysgol berthnasol am y dewisiadau modiwl sydd ar gael.

Dysgu ac asesu

Sut y caf fy addysgu?

Our teaching is heavily informed by our leading research and combines academic rigour with practical relevance. Our internationally acclaimed faculty consists of academics who are at the forefront of knowledge within their field. They bring the lessons learnt from their most recent research into the classroom, giving you access to up to date real life examples and scenarios and critical psychological thinking.

Most modules involve a mixture of lectures, small group teaching (seminars and tutorials) and practicals. In a lecture, the lecturer will be giving an overview of a particular aspect of the module content (as well as opportunities for you to ask questions and be reflective). Lectures are recorded and are available sooner after delivery to help with clarity and understanding of the topic. In seminars and tutorials you will have an opportunity to discuss ideas, apply concepts and consolidate your understanding in the topic. In practicals, you will be able to apply the techniques and theory you have learnt about and get experience conducting experiments.

The placement module, taken during the summer, will involve learning by experience (“on the job” training). You will acquire skills and knowledge by working closely with a professional psychologist.

Sut y caf fy asesu?

Assessment methods vary from module to module but, across your degree scheme as a whole, you can expect a mixture of exams, coursework, essays, practical work, presentations, individual and group projects, and a reflective portfolio.

Sut y caf fy nghefnogi?

You will be allocated a personal tutor at the beginning of your studies. Normally, your personal tutor will teach on your own degree course and you will keep the same personal tutor throughout your course.

Your personal tutor will be able to give you advice on academic issues, including module choice and assessment. If you encounter any problems which affect your studies, your personal tutor should always be your first point of contact; she/he will be able to put you in touch with the wide range of expert student support services provided by the University and the Students' Union as appropriate. You are required to meet with your personal tutor at three points during each academic year but you are also encouraged to get in touch with them at any other point if you need help or advice.

For day-to-day information, the Professional Academic support staff of our Postgraduate Student Hub are available, in person, by telephone or by email, from 8am to 6pm each weekday during term time to answer your questions.

Pa sgiliau y byddaf yn eu hymarfer a’u datblygu?

This course will teach you a range of skills useful to a career in psychology. You will learn about the core areas of psychology, such as Clinical and Developmental Psychology, and also how to critically appraise psychological theories within those fields. You will also learn practical skills such as how to design an experiment, collect, analyse and interpret a range of complex behavioural data, and how to present and communicate your work. During your placement you will learn how to put that those skills into practice.

Gyrfaoedd a lleoliadau gwaith

Gall gradd mewn seicoleg ddarparu amrywiaeth o opsiynau gyrfaol i chi a chaiff seicolegwyr eu cyflogi ar raddfa gynyddol eang mewn amrywiaeth o sectorau, gan gynnwys iechyd meddwl, ffactorau dynol, busnes ac addysg.

Mae cyflogwyr yn ffafrio graddedigion seicoleg oherwydd eu set sgiliau eang. Mae gradd mewn seicoleg yn adlewyrchu addysg prifysgol sydd nid yn unig yn datblygu sgiliau dadansoddol, meddwl beirniadol a llythrennedd ond hefyd sgiliau rhifedd a meintiol.

Lleoliadau

You will complete a 12-week placement in Semester 3 (Summer) where you will have the opportunity to work with professional psychologists in a clinic, research lab or organisation. This will enable you to put the skills and knowledge you’ve developed in the first two semesters into practice in a professional setting.

The placements on this MSc will be similar to those experienced on the undergraduate programme. Some examples of placements that our undergraduate students have been on are:

  • Research Assistant at Broadmoor Hospital;
  • Independent Domestic Violence advisor (IDVA) at Cardiff Women’s Aid;
  • Research Trainee at Her Majesty’s Inspectorate of Prisons;
  • Research Intern within the media, communications and advertising department of Ipsos MORI, London (market research agency);
