Admission Requirement / Eligibility Criteria

Due to the popularity of our programmes and the restricted numbers we are able to accept, we would recommend applying as early as possible to avoid disappointment. You are normally required to have obtained a good first or second upper class honours degree (or equivalent from a university outside the UK) in psychology or a related discipline (for example, cognitive neuroscience). Your degree should reflect psychology as a scientific discipline and have included the study of brain and behaviour.
