Course summary

Course overview

Our course is designed to provide you with the opportunity to solve problems from a psychological perspective – putting psychology into action by working actively with peers, tutors and community organisations. This allows you to gain hands-on experience throughout your studies, exploring why we behave the way we do.

Why study this course with us?

Our pioneering course distinguishes us from typical higher education institutions in the areas of teaching, learning and assessment. Our excellent staff-to-student ratio and small cohorts allow us to engage in progressive and unique teaching methods, offering a more interactive and student-centred learning environment. We put an emphasis on engaging students in discussion and debate, tackling current issues and trends in society.

To complement the teaching environment, our diverse and innovative range of assessments allows you to build a portfolio of personal and professional skills that are attractive to any employer. Examples include field trips, delivering workshops, writing for different audiences, mock job interviews, and conference and poster presentations.

Our unique position in the heart of the community allows us to offer you the opportunity to complete a community-based project in your second year. This project also provides you with the skills required to complete your independent dissertation. By working with local organisations (in each year), you will get first-hand experience of psychology in practice.

The emphasis of the course is to understand the practical ways in which psychology can be applied. Our students regularly work with organisations such as Age UK to solve real-world problems they are facing.

Job prospects

You will gain direct experience at every level of the degree that will build upon your personal and professional skills that are most relevant and in demand by employers. Furthermore, BPS-accredited courses allow students who satisfy the requirements to proceed to training in a range of professional psychology occupations.
