A well-respected and widely sought-after degree, studying Psychology equips you with skills in critical thinking and communication as well as scientific research methods, data analysis and data presentation skills. This broad range of transferable skills makes Psychology graduates an attractive prospect for graduate employers. A psychology degree can open up diverse career options in areas such as research, healthcare, social work, marketing, the police services, teaching and human resources. On completion of the course you will also be eligible for the Graduate Basis for Chartered Membership (GBC) with the British Psychological Society (BPS); your first step to becoming a chartered psychologist. During this course you will combine the study of psychology with study of the practice and history of education and contemporary issues within education.
Our psychology degree gives you an understanding of theories and research regarding the scientific study of mind and behaviour. You will also receive research methods training and be supported to undertake your own original Psychology research project in the final year of your studies.zz
