When to apply
We accept applications from October for students wanting to start the following September.
We encourage you to complete your application as early as possible, even if you haven't finished your current programme of study. It's very common to be offered a place that is conditional on you achieving a particular qualification.
If you're applying for funding you may be subject to an application deadline. Find out more about funding opportunities for UK/EU students and international students.
Late applications will only be considered if there are spaces available.
Selection is by personal application, references and interview.
You should have an undergraduate degree in Psychology, or in a relevant subject (not necessarily Psychology), of at least upper second class standard. Relevant work experience will be an advantage.
For those students who have an undergraduate degree in Psychology from a university that is accredited by the British Psychological Society (BPS) (otherwise known as Graduate Basis for Chartership; GBC), the Goldsmiths’ MSc in Occupational Psychology will allow you to progress to Stage 2 training with the BPS in order to attain professional chartership in occupational psychology. If your undergraduate degree is not accredited by the BPS, then you will not be eligible for the BPS chartership route, but will nevertheless welcome to apply for the MSc Occupational Psychology programme.
We accept a wide range of international equivalent qualifications, which can be found on our country-specific pages. If you'd like more information, please contact the Admissions Office.
If your first language isn't English, you need to demonstrate the required level of English language competence to enroll and study on our programmes.
Please check our English language requirements for more information.
Due to the popularity of this programme we ask you for a deposit of £450 to secure any offer made to you after applying for the programme. The deposit will be credited against your tuition fees when you enrol.
