Psychology (Distance Learning)

Course summary

The undergraduate psychology degree programme is designed for anyone from any academic background who is interested in understanding and developing psychological skills. Psychology is the study of people, their behaviours, thoughts, feelings, and motivations, which in turn promotes a greater appreciation of the human mind in a variety of contexts. Students who complete psychology degrees are well equipped for a career in almost any profession because studying psychology leads to the acquisition of transferable abilities such as communication skills, numeracy, teamwork, critical thinking, computing and independent learning. A distinctive feature of this Psychology programme is that it promotes a problem-based, practice-focused approach which helps to develop a broad range of skills in both science, industry and clinical settings. Therefore, not surprisingly, psychology students are well-equipped for competitive global markets and are in an ideal position to embrace changes and uncertainty. For these reasons, a psychology degree is constantly appreciated by employers who value the analytical and reasoning skills developed in a psychology programme. Indeed, according to the recent statistics on the Prospects website (a website supported by the Higher Education Careers Services Unit), around two-thirds of psychology graduates in the UK are in employment six months after graduating, while almost a quarter undertake further study or combine further study with work. Our programme offers a solid basis for all students for understanding multiple perspectives in psychology, including a scientific understanding of the mind, brain, and behaviour. This poses the foundation of students’ professional development and provides them with a clear understanding of the career path they might choose. Teaching and learning focus on developing core employability skills such as teamwork, coach-ability, problem-solving and a deep understanding of the latest research and its practical implications. The contemporary and global focus of our Psychology curriculum enhances the students’ understanding of the world and consequently gives them more work-related opportunities. Internships and/or work experience, although not mandatory, are encouraged and supported through the Student Office, which provides information and helps students in finding the right placement, during or after the completion of the Degree.

Assessment method

You will be assessed through a variety of coursework, from essays to projects, group work to portfolios. No written exams in the mix! We use a block teaching schedule, which allows us to concentrate on two 15-credit modules or one 30-credit module every 6 weeks. To promote engagement, students will attend group preparation classes in the morning, as a way of facilitating learning through independent research, peer feedback, and critical thinking.
