Course summary

Our Psychology programmes are accredited by the BPS. All of our Psychology programmes share a common level 4 and 5, where students are introduced to biological, developmental, social, differential and cognitive psychology. Students also receive a strong, lab-based training in research skills through 120 credits of Research Methods modules at levels 4 and 5. Through our research-led teaching, students learn about: the cognitive neuroscience of language and memory; social interaction and political psychology; children's cognitive development, including literacy, tool innovation and imagination; body image and bullying; and mental health and neurodiversity. We have dedicated labs equipped with EEG equipment for recording electrical activity in the brain, eye trackers, for monitoring gaze patterns with static or mobile eye trackers, virtual reality (VR) equipment, wall and ceiling-mounted cameras and a large collection of psychometric tests and questionnaires. We also offer an integrated Psychology Research Participation Scheme (PReP) where students benefit from participating in others’ research from the beginning of their studies. Our final year offering depends on the programme chosen. Students on the Forensic Psychology programme will cover topics such as murder, stalking and gangs, juvenile offenders, sexual offenders, and female offenders from a psychological perspective. They will critically consider the role of psychologists in the criminal justice system using appropriate enquiry techniques and learn about forensic psychology as a career. The programme includes an integrated work experience module at level 5, and students develop key employability skills through academic modules, a structured academic tutoring programme, and extra-curricular careers events.
