About our psychology courses

Our psychology Clearing courses offer a hands-on approach to the study of the mind – from biology to cognition and individual differences. Psychology graduates are well sought after in many workplaces due to their varied range of skills, including critical thinking, problem-solving and research.  

Accredited courses

All our psychology degree Clearing courses are accredited by the British Psychological Society (BPS). This means your learning is tailored to meet the high standards of the UK’s leading body for psychology professionals. By gaining a 2:1 degree classification on one of our BPS accredited courses, you’ll be awarded the Graduate Basis for Registration – the first step towards becoming a chartered psychologist.  

Work placements and studying abroad

As part of all our psychology Clearing courses, you’ll have the opportunity to apply for a sandwich year. Sandwich years take place between the second and third years of your course and allow you to study abroad or gain professional experience through a work placement. Sandwich years offer a great way to apply the skills and knowledge you’ve acquired on your studies to a real-world scenario, or enhance your university experience by studying in a different country. It’s important to note that sandwich years are limited, so placements are not guaranteed.
