...and most of them are accredited by the British Psychological Society (BPS)

Four of our psychology courses are accredited by the British Psychological Society (BPS) and share a core suite of modules covering fundamental topics and methods in psychology: cognitive psychology, biological psychology, developmental psychology, social psychology, personality and individual differences, historical and conceptual issues, research methods and practical psychology.

These psychology courses include the core modules required for the Graduate Basis for Chartered Membership of the British Psychological Society. This allows progression onto specialised psychology training such as Clinical, Counselling, Business or Educational Psychology.

Psychology with Communication is a brand-new course for 2019 and we are working towards achieving accreditation for this, too.

You'll have the opportunity to go on a professional placement

We encourage and provide support to students who wish to undertake an optional year-long work placement or study abroad opportunity. A placement year helps to develop essential skills and foster valuable industry contacts. We have strong connections with a range of organisations offering placements.

I completed a placement as part of my course and it was such a great experience. I worked in an outpatient eating disorders clinic and an inpatient adolescent unit; I learnt so much about working with clinical populations which is great as I want a career in healthcare.
