College of Arts, Social Sciences, & Celtic Studies
The HDipPsych (Conversion) is a one-year, full-time programme designed for students who have completed the BA with Psychological Studies at NUI Galway, or its equivalent. By combining the HDipPsych (Conversion) with the BA with Psychological Studies, students will have covered the course content equivalent to that of the NUI Galway BA in Psychology programme, thus qualifying graduates for entry to postgraduate professional programmes in Ireland and in the United Kingdom.
The HDipPsych (Full) is accredited by the Psychological Societyof Ireland (PSI) and thus satisfies the requirements specified by PSI for graduate status in psychology.
Places will be allocated on the order of results awarded at the first (summer) sitting of the Final Year of Psychological Studies at NUI Galway or an equivalent course. Students whose degree examination is not complete till autumn (August) by reason of repeating or deferral may be considered for admission one year later. Students must achieve honours in both their degree subjects, except in the case of pass level mathematical subjects only where a ‘commendation’ level is required.
