Course summary

Our British Psychological Society (BPS) accredited degree explores the human being, the workings of the brain, and the processes and mechanisms of human thinking, feeling and behaviour. This course will enable you to explore some of the most challenging questions in modern society: Why do we behave in the ways we do? Why do some people commit crime? This course also offers the opportunity to complete a one-year placement.

Modules

This course covers all the core areas of Psychology stipulated by the BPS curriculum. This accounts for two-thirds of the course and includes the workings of the brain; the processes and mechanisms of human thinking, feeling and behaviour; and how psychologists, psychological research and therapy can make a tangible and positive difference to society and people’s lives. The remaining third considers the social-cultural implications of crime and criminality and the contexts in which crimes are committed and understood. Core modules may include: Introduction to Psychology, Introduction to the Criminal Justice System, Understanding Crime and Society, Research Methods in Psychology, Statistics One, Explaining Criminal Behaviour, Cognitive and Biological Psychology, Penology, Policing, Psychology Research Project and Professional Practice in Psychology. As part of the four year sandwich course you will also complete a year-long work placement.

Entry requirements

Qualification requirements

A lower offer may be made based on a range of factors, including your background (such as where you live and the school or college you attended), your experiences and individual circumstances (you may have been in care, for example). This is called a contextual offer and we get data from UCAS to make these decisions. NTU offers a student experience like no other, and this approach helps us to find students who have the potential to succeed here, but may have faced barriers that can make it more difficult to access university. We also consider equivalent qualifications and combinations. Please contact Nottingham Trent University Admissions team for further information.
