Course summary

Psychology is an exciting and diverse field of study dedicated to understanding, describing, predicting, and controlling behaviour and thought. This programme provides a scientific approach to understanding people, their behaviour and thinking while studying in a thriving research environment. This course offers a 75 hour placement module in the second year and the option of a placement year.In the first two years of study, you will develop an in-depth understanding of basic psychological processes by exploring core topics such as individual differences, biological, developmental, social, and cognitive psychology. In the final year, you will focus on individual areas of interest through elective modules and self-generated research. Across the programme, students gain a comprehensive education in the scientific foundations of psychology and an introduction to applied practice across multiple domains.Throughout the programme our students participate in laboratory work and work to the British Psychological Society Code of Ethics. We invest heavily in our psychological research facilities and equipment which includes eye-tracking and virtual reality tools, a psychometric test library, and physiological measurement systems such as EEG. To assist with your practical laboratory work we will provide you with training in the use of our specialist equipment and in the research methods and data analytic techniques used by psychologists. The programme will equip you with the basic scientific grounding and theoretical understanding required for advanced-level studies.Graduates can find employment in professional areas such as business, human resources, training and development, marketing and advertising, recruitment and selection, and counselling. The programme establishes the building block for further studies where you can pursue careers in the professional practice of psychology including counselling, clinical, forensic, or organisational psychology, neuropsychology, research, and other specialist areas.This degree satisfies eligibility for the Graduate Basis for Chartership with the British Psychological Society, provided the minimum standard of qualification of second class honours is achieved.
