Candidates for admission to the Masters in Psychology will be required to hold at least an upper second class honors Bachelor degree or its equivalent (GPA 3.3) from a recognised university course.  Applicants will have completed a minor Psychology honours degree that did not confer eligibility for the Graduate Basis for Membership from the Psychological Society of Ireland.  Alternatively, they will have at least 60 psychology ECTS credits or cognate ECTS credits (for example, psychology credits earned from modules taken as part of a sociology or economics degree).  Credits counted must be attached to psychology modules taken, i.e., modules clearly aligned with one of the subdisciplines of psychology and covering relevant content as would be typical or standard for such a psychology module, albeit taken as part of a degree in another discipline.  Applicants to the course will be required, at the application stage, to provide official transcripts, detailed outlines and descriptors, and information about the contact hours, ECTS credit volume, content and assessment for each module submitted as contributing to the 60 ECTS credits.  Only credits earned for modules that would be classified as appropriate on a psychology course will be counted.  This information will form the basis for their admission to this course
