Course summary

Overview Develop a range of skills valued by employers Our course combines broad theoretical skills of modern psychology practice with a focus on the neuroscientific explanations and research of human behaviour. You’ll study in the psychology department which has some of the most high-tech equipment available. In our sector-leading laboratory, you’ll have access to all the facilities you would imagine from a top class lab – psychophysiological monitoring, electroencephalography (EEG), and more. 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. The course is accredited by the British Psychological Society (BPS) and you’ll have access to membership once you graduate with your psychology and neuroscience degree, providing you gain a 2:2 award or above. After graduation, you can choose to progress into postgraduate training or pursue a career in law, politics or teaching. Previous graduates have gone on to work with companies like Pro Star Academy, Royal Free Hospital, and more. Learn in an active environment Throughout your degree you’ll study the foundations of psychology and neuroscience, broadening your understanding and knowledge of the disciplines. You’ll learn by researching, analysing and processing complex data and real-life case studies. Designed to give you a deep understanding of psychology, this course sets you up perfectly for further postgraduate training. It also teaches you transferable skills required for a career across a wide range of industries. During the course you’ll also have the option to undertake a work placement so you can test the skills you've built up throughout your modules. This year long placement sets you up to succeed when you go on to your postgraduate career. A wide range of influential and established organisations are involved with the placement course, for example Great Ormond Hospital School, St Georges Hospital, Priory Hospital, Institute of Psychiatry, Institute of Education, University College London, Holloway Prison, and the Metropolitan Police. Supporting you in your career Our personalised approach gives you the support you need to succeed as a student. While you're an undergraduate or foundation year student, you’ll have a Personal Tutor directly related to your course. If you need support with academic writing, numeracy and library skills, we’ll be sure to provide it. Our Student Learning and Graduate Academic Assistants have studied your subject and can support you based on their own experience.
