Students are able to choose from further optional courses available with the approval of the Programme Director. Not all optional courses will necessarily be available in any given year, students should consult the DRPS for the current year.
These choices cover a very broad range of topics, from Neural Computation to Creative Therapies with Children and Young People (please check eligibility), and give a great deal of flexibility to customise the programme to your requirements (the "DRPS search" button in the top right will show the hundreds of courses to choose from).
You should normally select Level 11 (postgraduate) courses, however, up to 40 credits of Level 10 PPLS Psychology courses may be substituted to enable specialisation, subject to authorisation from the Programme Director. Any student taking 40 credits of Level 10 PPLS Psychology courses will still be required to take 90 credits of coursework at level 11 (at no additional cost) in order to meet SCQF requirements. All courses you take for credits will be considered for progression and award of degree.
