Psychology is an exciting, real-world science and this course provides a unique insight into how we behave. Many jobs put psychology into practice, from management and human resources to managing a factory shop floor, or running a business. The only one of its kind in the region, this course combines academic study with work placements designed to highlight the range of different careers available. You will also have an opportunity to try out specialist equipment and scientific software through guest sessions at the University of South Wales’s Pontypridd Campus.
