Students are also required to complete a research project under supervision. Career Opportunities This programme provides an excellent foundation for postgraduate courses of study and careers in a variety of areas. Completing this diploma will enable a graduate to gain access to further training to become a professional psychologist (e.g., a clinical, counselling or occupational psychologist) or to undertake a research degree in psychology (e.g., a PhD in Psychology). Minimum Entry Requirements Places will be allocated on the order of results awarded at the first sitting of the final year of Psychological Studies at NUI Galway or an equivalent course. Students must achieve honours in both their degree subjects, except in the case of pass-level mathematical subjects where a ‘commendation’ level is required.
