Course summary

Overview

An exceptionally versatile degree, we'll provide you with a rich understanding of human behaviour and the processes that underlie learning, memory, social interactions, feelings, thinking and communication. We're amongst the first in the UK to teach the core curriculum in an integrated manner, where a concept is explored from multiple perspectives in the same module. This course is accredited by the British Psychological Society (BPS) and satisfies the requirements for the Graduate Basis of Chartership in just one year; a vital step in your journey towards becoming a professional psychologist. Previous study of psychology is not required.

Employability

This conversion course is the gateway to a career in clinical, counselling, forensic, health, educational, or occupational psychology. We'll teach you excellent written, analytical and numerical skills to enable you to pursue a wide range of careers in areas such as counselling, teaching, the probation and court services, market research, human resources and business. Our department provides careers support and advice for the time our students study with us and beyond. We organise various careers activities such as talks and seminars, and have arranged work placements in collaboration with many organisations. Recent graduates have gone onto roles such as Assistant Psychologist (Clinical), Research Assistant, Social Worker, Mental Health Support Worker, and Mental Health Nurse. If you graduate from this course, you'll be able to apply for further study at postgraduate level. You can also enter the field of academic research (e.g. a recent student has just started studying for a PhD).
