The Open University has recently re-launched a number of post-graduate options that are of particular interest to psychology students, and the London region OUPS committee has collaborated with the University to create this one-day seminar in response to many requests from our members for information about these new degrees.

The four degrees in question are:

The event will consist of a series of four 75-minute talks in which speakers will present on key topics relating to these degrees, with opportunities for delegates to ask questions about the particular courses and qualifications involved. 

While  OUPS members receive a discounted rate for the event, this seminar is open to everyone including those who are neither OU students nor OUPS members.
