Course summary

OVERVIEW

Explore the history of modern psychology, the influence of our biology on behaviour, and the workings of the human brain. Develop a critical understanding of qualitative and quantitative research methods. And, apply for Graduate Basis for Chartered Membership, the first step to becoming a chartered psychologist.

Designed for students who have a degree without accreditation from The British Psychological Society (BPS), our course allows you to qualify for the further professional training you’ll need to become a chartered psychologist in the UK.

We teach this course entirely online, covering each unit over a series of topic weeks. You’ll usually learn through ‘mini lectures’ (available as short podcasts), online discussions, readings from core texts (you will normally receive these as free e-books), and learning activities such as workbook exercises.

Some of the topics you’ll explore include how we remember things, how our identities are constructed, and how our perceptions change as we age. You’ll also have the opportunity to choose option units. Previous units include Educational Psychology, Forensic Psychology, and Counselling.

Our course is accredited by the British Psychological Society and, when you graduate, you can apply for Graduate Basis for Chartered Membership (GBC). Once you have GBC, you can continue with further study in a specialist area and become a chartered psychologist.

CAREER PROSPECTS

When you graduate, you’re eligible to apply for Graduate Basis for Chartered Membership (GBC).

This is the first step towards becoming a chartered psychologist in the UK and means that you can continue with further study to specialise in a particular field of psychology.

Depending upon the field of psychology you choose to specialise in the future, some of the places you might work in are local authorities, social services, prisons, sports clubs, the NHS or private hospitals, schools and rehabilitation centres.

Students can also exit with PGDip Award.
