Accredited by the British Psychological Society (BPS) or Chartered Management Institute (CMI) This course is accredited by the BPS if you choose to major in Psychology and complete the credit-bearing modules. This shows we have met BPS standards for delivering a high-standard of psychology education and student development. This accreditation means you can apply for BPS student membership, offering you networking opportunities, discounts, access to academic journals, events and e-learning. Our course is also accredited by the Chartered Management Institute, meaning our course meets the CMI’s high standards and priorities. The CMI is a UK professional body dedicated to promoting excellence in management and leadership. CMI accreditation is, therefore, a sign of a high-quality degree. Students receive this accreditation if they pass the Business Management modules in their first year and select and pass required modules in their second year. Specialist facilities Our Psychology and Business Management facilities are used for both teaching and research. They include computing labs with specialist software for designing experiments and research.

Our Business facilities include a Financial Market Lab where we offer students direct use of financial data, information and analytics to provide a simulation of what it’s like to work on a real trading floor in the financial district. Our Derby Business School (due to be completed in 2025) will offer a dedicated space for real-world learning facilities.
