As well as the above subjects, your will be required to complete a thesis of 10,000 words on a topic in Psychology of your choice (this will be decided in consultation with your Tutor). A student not submitting an up-to-standard thesis will not be awarded the M.Sc.
The thesis must be on a topic agreed with your Tutor and should have a research bias. Students are expected to begin working on the thesis after their exams. A thesis proposal must be submitted to the Tutor long before the end of the programme on a special form provided by the Institute. Rules and Regulations for the preparation of the thesis are also provided to the student by the Institute.
The pass mark is 50% and your performance will be indicated on the Transcript. If the Thesis is not of an acceptable standard and you have to re-submit, then you must pay an extra 100 Euro. You will only be allowed to re-submit once.
A good first degree from a recognised University OR two or more years’ relevant working experience if your previous degree was not in psychology. Relevant working experience is desirable but not essential for graduates in psychology.
