Overlap of MSc and Doctorate courses...what happens

Post by dbc » Fri Jun 22, 2018 2:12 pm

if I undertake an MSc starting Jan 2019 and then get offered a place on DClinPsych for Sept 2019…..what do I do?

Obviously this is all hyypothetical as both are competitive processes and I may get turned down for both. Just wondering what peoples experiences are of similar situations.

Stop the former and start the latter.

Many universities offer "exit degrees" which you could consider if you start the MSc and then get onto the DClin. Successful completion of 60 credits in your MSc would ordinarily allow you to exit with a PGCert (post-grad certificate) in the subject, and 120 credits (usually everything but the thesis/dissertation) is sufficient for a PGDip (post-grad diploma).

Check out your options! (and how it affects your funding source(s) if relevant))
