Psychology is the study of how people and animals think, act, react and interact. Psychology is concerned with all aspects of behaviour and the thoughts, feelings and motivations underlying such behaviour. Single honours and all major pathways are fully accredited by the British Psychological Society as conferring eligibility for the Graduate Basis for Chartered Membership (GBC).
In the government’s independent assessment of education quality, our student support, teaching quality, imaginative and flexible curriculum design and facilities attracted particular praise from the assessors. Our aim is to give you broad coverage of psychology with opportunities to specialise and develop skills relevant to your future. In the 2012 Student Survey, 92% of our students were satisfied overall with their course, above the average for Psychology courses. You'll spend 24% of your time in scheduled classes, with the rest of the time spent in independent study and research. You will be assessed by a mixture of examinations and coursework - 56% of your work is coursework, so you can use feedback to improve as you work through the course.
This course provides broad coverage of theoretical and applied issues in psychology from across the field. It is ideal for students who know they want to study psychology but are not sure which areas interest them most. If you want more, then see our new four-year undergraduate masters course
