Program description

Psychology BSc (Hons)

The programme begins at a modest pace and ends by opening up conceptual and career possibilities that you may not have previously considered.

We begin by introducing you to the five main psychological perspectives: biological, cognitive, developmental, individual differences and social, alongside research methods. Additionally, the historical and conceptual underpinnings of Psychology will be explored throughout.

Admission requirements

We accept a wide range of qualifications for entry to our undergraduate programmes. Typical offers include A-level grades CCC, with a grade C in Psychology or another subject (if Psychology is unavailable).

Career opportunities

Some of our graduates have completed, or are currently taking postgraduate education at the Master's and PhD levels. Graduates with single or major honours in Psychology (accredited by the British Psychological Society) can apply directly for postgraduate training, in order to work towards becoming a professional psychologist.

The majority of Psychology graduates, across the country, do not become professional psychologists. Some of our graduates have gone on to train in counselling. Many students choose to undertake PGCEs and a number of these are gaining experience for Educational Psychology courses. Other students go into management, sales and advertising, probation work and human resources. Psychology is an attractive option since students learn both numerative/scientific skills and people skills.
