Psychologists explore behaviour – the ways our minds work, how we think and interact with the world and why we react in the ways we do. Our course covers all elements of psychological study, from childhood, neuropsychology, and forensic, to counselling, psychotherapy, and abnormal psychology. Psychologists explore behaviour using scientific methods such as observation, experiments and statistical analysis. On the course, you might be conducting experiments, placed in a mock courtroom giving evidence on a patient, debating against fellow students on how we motivate people to make healthy eating choices, or watching a role-play in our simulated living area. We support our students to develop their natural curiosity, creating psychology graduates equipped to explore the human experience in an ethical, empathetic and scientific manner. Some of the topics you’ll study include the influence of biology and genetics on behaviour, perception and memory, diagnosing and treating mental illness, and the ethical issues around working with children. The BSc (Hons) Psychology with Foundation Year provides a route onto a degree if you don't meet the entry requirements but have the ability to study a degree. . Features and benefits
