Clinical and Community Psychology at University of East London - UCAS

Course summary

Clinical and community psychology is all about learning from, and initiating positive change with, vulnerable and marginalised people and groups. The focus is not just on the individuals themselves, but on how factors in society have an impact on lives. If you want to be out there in the real world, learning and researching and making a difference, this is the course for you. You'll practise what you are learning through partnerships or voluntary schemes within local community groups or the NHS. You'll widen your experience and learn new skills, such as evidence-based evaluations, report writing and making recommendations for practice. In at least one of your modules, you have the opportunity to undertake a professional piece of evidence-based research for a community partner - a service that the organisation would perhaps not otherwise have been able to afford. There are many jobs and careers that are options for you with a BSc Psychology degree. These include jobs within the allied psychology sector, such as: employment specialist, psychological wellbeing practitioner, social prescribing link worker, wellbeing manager, mental health social worker, FE psychology teacher, research assistant or assistant psychologist, community and mental health support and other NHS roles in mental health. Some of these many require further training that we can help you with. Some of our graduates choose to seek employment in non-psychology areas. These are jobs in areas where there are employers who want psychology graduates, due to the transferable skills you will gain during your studies. These include human resources, market research, civil service, business graduate training schemes, teaching, third sector and charity roles, administration, self-employed or entrepreneur, data work in public and private sectors and allied health professions. BSc Psychology is also an essential qualification for students seeking further training and careers in academia, research, clinical, counselling, occupational and educational psychology. All of these options are possible with our BPS-accredited degrees alongside experience. Other postgraduate options that you may wish to specialise include health psychology, sports psychology, neuropsychology or neuroscience, clinical associate psychologist training.

Assessment method

We will be assessing your academic work and supporting you in producing it. Assessment methods include group work, exams and individual work including essays, presentations, case studies, professional development and practical activities depending on the nature of the module. All grades count towards module marks, and assessment is through a mixture of coursework and exams. These are mainly spread across the year to make things more manageable. You won't have any exams in your first year. The balance of coursework and exams in your second year will depend on your choice of option modules. The second year includes a core, work-based learning module (Work-based Learning in Psychology, for which a minimum of 30 hours' work experience over one term is included in the module's study hours). You will not be assessed on performance in the workplace. Instead, you will be required to reflect on your experience, and make links to relevant psychological research and theory and to your own personal and professional development. In your third year, a significant part of your assessment will be based on your final research project coursework. More details are included in the programme handbook and module guides when you enrol. Feedback is provided within 15 working days in line with UEL's assessment and feedback policy.
