Course Summary

At Keele University, we’re different. Nestled in 600 acres of countryside in the heart of the UK, we have a big campus but a small and cosmopolitan community. We’re proud to be ‘University of the Year for Student Experience’ in The Times and The Sunday Times Good University Guide 2017, in addition to having been ranked No.1 in the National Student Survey 2014-2016. This is because it’s more than green and lovely, it’s a place of research and academic excellence too. At Keele, studying a combined honours degree will include some modules from both of the single honours degrees. In this case, your programme will be made up of a combination of modules from both Neuroscience and PsychologyYou will be challenged with exciting ideas and findings from psychology and neuroscience. In Psychology, you will study social and developmental psychology, cognitive and biological psychology and research methods. In Neuroscience you learn about the nervous system, its various components and how they work, and how they are affected by disease.In your final year you will carry out a research project in each subject under the expert guidance of an academic staff member. Examples include the psychological impact of pain, assessing effects of direct eye contact on physiological responses in people with autism characteristics, using cell culture as a transplant therapy, using an electron microscope to investigate cell structure. You’ll benefit from a supportive environment as well as fantastic lab facilities and equipment.There is an option to undertake a laboratory placement year in your third year as a part of the Neuroscience component of your degree.The psychology modules on this course are accredited by the British Psychological Society, a necessary first step for many professional careers in psychology, such as clinical, counselling, educational, forensic, occupational or sports psychology, and a prerequisite to becoming a Chartered Psychologist. Combining psychology and neuroscience prepares students for these psychology careers as well as careers in teaching, scientific civil service, civil service, IT, journalismand others.With additional training, options include hospital pathology and clinical assessment, and research. If you choose the industrial placement, you’ll have the added benefit of significant work experience to offer employers. Alternatively this combination makes excellent preparation for postgraduate study in the subjects of Psychology or Neuroscience.
