The BSc Psychology in Education is an applied psychology degree using psychological research methods to understand and interpret social and human behaviour in the context of education, wherever and whenever it happens throughout people’s lives. As with our BSc Education Studies, education is conceptualised as lifelong and in many different contexts. The British Psychological Society accreditation means that successful students are eligible to apply for professional training as a psychologist. Students acquire valuable skills spanning two rapidly changing disciplines that inform each other. You will apply psychological theory and research to real-life educational settings involving children, adolescents and adults. The course currently includes an optional placement unit, Education in Practice, where you will have the opportunity to connect your academic learning with the practice of education on a placement within a school, community organisation, charity, museum, or other relevant organisation. Lectures, workshops, seminars, discussions, guided independent study and tutorials offer a well-rounded, evidence-based and flexible basis for professional development. Seminars and workshop activities encourage you to collaborate with others, while individual and group presentations help you develop confidence in conveying your arguments and ideas. This course is available as a four-year degree, including a year studying in English at a partner institution overseas.
