Course summary

Investigate the developing mind, apply social psychology to current events, and develop a scientific understanding of human experience with our BSc Psychology degree Explore human psychology, from behaviour to emotions and brain development with our BSc Psychology degree. On this course, you will learn how psychology applies to the individual, institutions, and even to politics. Our psychology programme is accredited by the British Psychological Society. By successfully completing this course you will be eligible for the Graduate Membership with the British Psychological Society (BPS). A supportive community We are smaller than many other universities. This means the psychology department can foster a community that provides you with support from staff and peers. Our BSc Psychology student, Maya, tells us their teachers were “warm and friendly, committed to providing amazing opportunities for all of their students”. Exceptional teaching from research-active staff We rose 42 places in the Complete University Guide (2023). Our student, Lara, explains that the teaching on the psychology course is “to the highest standard” and that “the lecturers are incredibly knowledgeable”. Our staff also actively contribute to research, covering:

  • non-traditional romantic relationships
  • intergroup relationships
  • attentional biases associated with anxiety
  • intergenerational relationships within family contexts
  • decision making
  • visuomotor processing.
Attend talks on key developments With our Student Psychology Society, you can attend exciting talks hosted by guest speakers, so you keep up to date with pressing issues and key developments.

  • charities
  • schools
  • hospitals
