Course summary

Untangle behaviour. Unravel mysteries of the mind. Study the science of the brain on this course and achieve a psychology degree accredited by the British Psychological Society. Psychology puts every aspect of the brain and our behaviour under the microscope – how we learn, interact and use body language. Accredited by the British Psychological Society, our psychology degree is designed to help you explore concepts and theories of the mind. You’ll investigate different areas by asking why. Why do mental illnesses occur? Why do we use substances? And we’ll also ask how. How does memory affect our ability to recall a crime? How do you apply psychological theories to the real world? Developing research skills is vital too. We’ll help you explore the latest methodologies. At the same time, you’ll develop career skills in creativity, critical thinking and communication. Outside the lecture theatre, look out for exciting opportunities to work with our experts on their latest research projects. Your psychology degree will be taught by experts who are carrying out world-leading research in their field. Our student-led psychology society brings together people who share a love for the subject. Attend their social events, benefit from peer mentoring and networking opportunities, and hear from unique speakers from across the UK.
