Course summary

Accredited by the British Psychological Society, this degree will give you a thorough grounding in the fundamental principles of psychology, the scientific study of mind and behaviour. You focus on the application of psychology in an educational context and how individuals learn and develop. You will also investigate the core areas of psychology and examine how these have been applied to education in the areas of learning, teaching and assessment, while a work placement will help you link these theoretical concepts with real-world situations.
