Are you fascinated by how psychology shapes children’s development and behaviour? Do you want to make a real difference to children’s lives? You’ll cover the core theories and themes of psychology, while studying specialist modules in educational psychology. We’ll help you to develop your critical and analytical skills by linking theory to practice. You’ll also complete two professional work placements during your degree, applying your skills and knowledge in child-centred organisations. In your final year, you’ll get the opportunity to specialise in child development-themed learning and teaching, which will further develop the knowledge and skills you need to make a real difference to people’s lives in the wider community. We create a supportive and lively learning environment, in which you’ll learn through teamwork and collaboration. We’ll teach you through a mix of workshops, practicals and lectures, with a strong focus on student-led learning. Your assessments will focus on developing your employability skills, as well as developing and demonstrating your academic learning. Most assessments are individual, but we also have some group-based assessments to help you to develop your teamworking skills. Graduate opportunities You’ll open doors to a wide range of postgraduate qualifications and careers in child and educational psychology, clinical psychology, teaching and counselling. You’ll also be well-prepared for many child-centred roles in the public and private sectors, including social and education research, community projects and charitable organisations. Your degree will also prepare you for postgraduate study in any area of psychology. Placement opportunities We are one of only a few UK universities to build professional work placements into every degree. You’ll complete two professional work placements, which will give you the chance to graduate with up to three months’ professional work experience without having to take a sandwich year out. We’ll work with you to help you find a placement that matches your career aspirations. Our students have worked in a wide range of roles and organisations, from supporting head teachers in a pupil referral unit, to supporting and facilitating educational attainment for young people with social, emotional and behavioural difficulties.
On this course you will study a selection of modules, including: Research Methods in Psychology, Cognition and the Brain, Psychology and Social Issues, Supporting Transitions, Inclusion, SEN and Disability, Childhood and Society, Psychology and Advertising, Counselling Psychology, Psychology, Mental Health and Distress.
