This programme provides a detailed understanding of various aspects of psychology relevant to the workplace.

In all areas, however, the business psychology approach is to utilise primary research data and psychological principles to analyse situations and develop evidence-based policies.

Bachelor,s Honours Degree Students will typically have a first or second class Honours degree (or equivalent four-year qualification).Bachelor,s Degree Students completing a non-Honours degree and who have several years of relevant additional work experience may be considered for entry to the Postgraduate Diploma, which may lead to registration for the MSc qualification pending the successful completion of assessments.Non-graduate applicants with significant senior managerial experience may be considered in exceptional circumstances. Applicants may be required to sit an entry interview (in person or via phone) to verify qualifications, work experience and academic ability.

Business psychologists may be employed in-house or as consultants to advise on issues relating to workforce performance and employee behaviour. In addition, a deeper understanding of people s behaviour in the workplace is an important skill for managers in any industry. This degree therefore directly enhances the potential of graduates pursuing careers in management, training and human capital roles as well as in the fast-growing field of business psychology itself. The knowledge can equally be applied to any role in which employee or client relations are important for success.
