Considering a move into the field of psychology? Or perhaps you're simply interested in learning more. A good place to begin is with our Master of Science in Psychology (Conversion). This course is an excellent introduction to the practical application of fundamental psychological skills, knowledge, and values for students who did not major in psychology in college.
If you do well in this class, you'll be prepared to continue your studies in psychology at the doctoral level or to find work in fields as diverse as medicine, education, law enforcement, and more. Furthermore, we are currently applying for certification from the British Psychological Society (BPS), which will pave the way for you to become a Chartered Psychologist upon completion of the program.

About the university
The University of Law is the largest law school in the United Kingdom and was formed in 1962 as The College of Law of England and Wales. It offers law degrees, specialized legal training, and continuing professional development courses for British barristers and lawyers. Its beginnings can be found around 1876.
Prior to receiving university status in 2012, the College of Law's educational and training business was divided off and incorporated as a private limited company. The College of Law had been established by royal charter as a charity in 1975. The College of Law Limited and The University of Law Limited were created from this. The college was given the authority to offer degrees in 2006. When it was given university status in 2012, it changed its name to The University of Law (ULaw) and became the first for-profit educational institution in the UK.
The university has nine campuses in the UK, located in Birmingham, Bristol, Chester, Guildford, Leeds, Manchester, Nottingham, and Sheffield, in addition to an overseas campus in Hong Kong.
All of our courses, from our undergraduate law degrees to our varied range of business courses and postgraduate programmes, are created using a special, varied, and innovative learning approach that has been shown to produce independent professionals capable of competing in the quickly changing professional world. Our courses are created to prepare you for the real-life difficulties of the working world with a focus on developing abilities in problem-solving, evaluating arguments, critical thinking, and commercial awareness.
