Psychology is about people - the study of the human mind and behaviour. As such psychology graduates are well sought after in many workplaces.
This course is designed to provide you with in-depth knowledge and opportunities for learning a wide range of psychological concepts. It has a hands-on approach to developing research skills and encourages you to apply the theory to real-world settings. The final year gives you the opportunity to specialise in areas of psychology that interest you and to undertake a supervised research project of your own.

Our Psychology course is accredited by the British Psychological Society (BPS) – if you achieve a lower second class degree or above, Graduate Basis for Registration is awarded. This is the first step to becoming a chartered psychologist.
You will learn about the core areas of psychology; biological, cognitive, developmental, social and individual differences. These core areas are underpinned with research methods, which is integrated into your learning across the modules, as well as being a standalone module. You will learn to be a critical thinker, able to consider a problem, develop a research plan and execute that plan. You will initially be introduced to the key areas of psychology, then explore these in detail at year 2, finally in year 3 you have option modules in which you can explore areas of interest to you.
You will choose four modules from a selection, the modules we offer provide the most up-to-date research-based teaching, and as such will vary from year to year. A selection of our modules are included below.
Please note that it may not be possible to deliver the full list of options every year as this will depend on factors such as how many students choose a particular option. Exact modules may also vary in order to keep content current. When accepting your offer of a place to study on this programme, you should be aware that not all optional modules will be running each year. Your tutor will be able to advise you as to the available options on or before the start of the programme. Whilst the University tries to ensure that you are able to undertake your preferred options, it cannot guarantee this.
