More Information

Over the first two years of the programme, we cover a diverse syllabus, approved by our accrediting professional body, the British Psychological Society (BPS), which provides a solid foundation across the full range of Psychology’s core domains.

Throughout your time with us, you’ll develop the wide range of transferable skills which make our graduates so appealing to employers. Psychology offers an arguably unique grounding in both qualitative and quantitative research skills, meaning our graduates have high verbal and numerical competencies. You’ll have well-developed organisation and self-management skills and be confident communicators to both small and large groups of people, using a range of media. Equipped with team-working and leadership experiences, you’ll not only be able to problem solve with critical insight, but lead others to do so too. All this on top of your insights into the mind and behaviours of others, and yourself.
