Course summary

Inspired by the fact that around 30% of our psychology graduates go on to work in education, Roehampton is proud to launch this new degree that combines both disciplines to create a uniquely career focused programme of study. BSc Psychology and Education Practice combines the core elements of our newly designed BSc Psychology with key modules from the School of Education's unique new programme, BA Education Practice. The course will seek accreditation from the British Psychological Society (BPS) and therefore teaches all the areas of psychology that are required of the BPS, such as developmental, social and cognitive psychology. Alongside this, students will also explore inclusive and holistic approaches to teaching and learning, providing a solid grounding in their journey as education practitioners. In the final year the two disciplines merge as students embark on an education career pathway that focuses on neurodevelopmental disorders and educational psychology. Subject to gaining BPS accreditation, students graduating with a 2:2 or higher will gain Graduate Basis for Chartership (GBC) which will qualify them to apply for professional psychology postgraduate programmes as the first step towards a career as a chartered psychologist.
