Credit transfer students – Psychology

Every year students move from one university to another for a variety of reasons. If you’re one of those wishing to explore this, we’d like to help you to see if Buckingham is the right option for you. We’ll do our utmost to give you the very best advice.

How easy is it to transfer?

  • Transferring from one university to another is relatively straightforward because the early modules on BSc Psychology programmes tend to be similar.
  • You will only need 90 credits to transfer to Buckingham (you will probably have taken 120 credits worth of modules over one year).
  • If you have less than 90 credits, a transfer may still be possible.
  • Transfer is like for like. You must have taken and been awarded credit for the research methods and statistics module(s) on your current degree.

How to transfer

Please make sure that you allow enough time for your application to be considered. Contact us as soon as you can if you are considering this option. Buckingham’s Summer term starts on Monday 13 July.
