Re: Open University Psychology

Hello Galatea,

You have made a couple of points i want to comment on:
- bps - like i said is only needed if i want to work in uk but it wad confusing since zurich university asked for an accredited decree in uk. I needed to find out which kind of accreditation they need
- the second point about them not allowing to transfer credits because they want to make sure your are doing core subjects is not correct.
The bachelor with bps accreditation requires you to do 180 in psychology.
The bachelor in psychology and computer science does not give you bps accreditation because it is still trying to obtain accreditation.
In this case i would study:
First year 30 cs and 30 psy
Second year 30 cs and 30 psy
Third year 30cs and 30 psy

If i transfer all 90 cs, i would have left 90 in psychology. That means i wouldnt miss any core modules and it would be enough for a masters at zurich university since a bachelor there can be monostudy but also have a major and a minor.

The reason that is not possible is because they can only transfer all the credits for level 1 and then some level 2. that wozldnt work because bps requires that you study your modules in a certain order. Thats why i chose the non bos accredited open degree.

Of course, i will know for sure when i apply for the masters at zurich uni.

I want to work as a clinical psychologyst in my own practice and for that i need a masters and a further education program.
I am not sure that a bachelor is that important. I just need to get into the masters program.
