Studying Psychology you learn about people – how they think and what they do, perceive and feel. A scientific understanding of people opens the door to a wide range of careers, from clinical and forensic psychologist to social work and roles in marketing, local government, public relations and human resources. Our British Psychological Society (BPS) accredited degree enables you to confront the issues that humans face with psychology's scientific principles. From brain injury to prejudice reduction, child development to offending behaviour and rehabilitation. We provide you with the tools to develop interventions for hospitals, schools and businesses, making a difference to society through innovations in policy and research. Shape your degree outside the classroom by participating in our student-led Psychology Society who host regular events, including co-run seminars with our academic team exploring current questions.
