Course summary

Overview* Through studying both psychology and education you will gain an expert understanding of educational principles underpinned by the theory of human behaviour. It is the ideal degree for those wishing to gain the knowledge, skills and experience to enter a career within education. Why study BSc Psychology with Education at Middlesex University? Our degree, accredited by the British Psychology Society (BPS), offers some of the best psychology teaching and research facilities in the UK, including both a psychophysiology and a virtual reality laboratory. Not only will you gain theoretical and practical knowledge of modern psychology (the study of human behaviour), you will integrate your learning with the theory and practice of education studies. Even in eventualities where we are unable to be in the laboratory or classroom together, we aim to use virtual tools to help you develop key practical skills. Taking part in a year long industry placement can enable you to put theory into practice and gain invaluable professional experience. Our degree is an ideal step towards postgraduate training to become an occupational or organisational psychologist, or as a route towards an education-focused career. This can include roles within research, teaching or academia.
