All our BSc courses are Honours courses recognised by a number of professional bodies, including the British Psychological Society, Health and Care Professions Council, and the Royal College of Speech and Language Therapists. Our students go on to find great jobs in both vocational careers (Psychologists, Speech and Language Therapists, Teachers etc.) and in areas such as business, marketing, law, and other industries where logic and critical thinking are valued.
Our courses and our syllabus cover a variety of experimental approaches and a wide range of topics. We take great pride in our teaching programme, which is regularly reviewed to incorporate new specialist areas to reflect recent research developments. Our teaching staff are actively involved in research and our evidence-based approach to psychology is reflected in our course programme.
