Course information

The course has been designed to meet the accreditation criteria of the British Psychological Society (BPS) to confer eligibility to apply for Graduate Basis for Chartered Membership (GBC) on successful completion.

You will have the opportunity to build the knowledge and skills necessary to fully appreciate the depth and breadth essential to the study of psychology, encompassing traditional and contemporary psychological models, theories and methodologies. Some of the specialist modules allow us to look at how psychology is applied in specific contexts. For example, the ‘Applied Psychology’ module considers its impact within the modern-day world - in counselling, clinical, forensic, educational, sport, work and health psychology.

Career prospects

Psychology is used professionally in all areas of life, from education and health to the economy and crime. Psychologists help people of all ages – from young children to teenagers, adults and the elderly. They support people facing a wide range of circumstances, from the bereaved to those made redundant, victims of crime to the mentally ill.
