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.n 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.

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.
