A Combined Honours degree at Chester gives you the opportunity to study two subjects. You will spend a fairly even amount of time studying each subject area, with possible opportunities to declare a major – minor towards the end of your studies. Psychology Delve deep into the mind and discover more about how people think, behave and feel on this BPS-accredited degree programme. The School of Psychology at Chester offers degrees accredited by the British Psychological Society (BPS). The course structure allows you to study a wide range of areas of psychology through optional modules at all levels, alongside the core modules required for BPS accreditation. If you’re interested in a professional career in psychology, there are specialist routes through the course where you can take relevant elective modules at each level. This degree will also equip you with a variety of employability skills, including literacy, numeracy, critical appraisal, data handling, communication and logical problem-solving skills. We also offer an optional further year of study abroad that you take between your second and third years of study. As this is an additional year, this means you can use this as an opportunity to pursue areas of study of your choice, whilst exploring another country and culture. Sport and Exercise Sciences Discover the science behind producing elite sporting performances and physical activity for health promotion through an applied and vocational approach. In recent years, the sports, recreation and leisure industries have shown continued growth. International success and the growing health agenda has ensured that investment and interest in sport and exercise in the UK continues to increase substantially. Therefore, the course is designed with two core principles in mind. Firstly, the development of knowledge, applied skills and analytical techniques in the conventional subdisciplines of sport and exercise sciences. Secondly, the orientation of studies around vocational opportunities and practices, including PE, sports management, development, coaching, health promotion, leisure and recreation, as well as sport science support and sport and exercise sciences generally. The practical and applied nature of the course is a major feature. We have a wide range of facilities including Performance Analysis, Muscle Function and Sports Biomechanics laboratories. Exton Park also boasts a gym, swimming pool, floodlit 3G MUGA pitch, sprint track, floodlit tennis courts and more. The Department prides itself on its approachable staff and varied teaching strategies, which external examiners and current students praise highly. Through using a student- centred approach, we produce graduates with subject expertise and career potential.

For Psychology, assessment methods for each module vary, but usually include coursework and examinations. The coursework may involve a traditional essay or, more commonly, a workshop task, presentation, or a case study. Assessments are designed to develop your employability skills as well as allowing you to show your understanding of psychology. This course is accredited by the British Psychological Society (BPS) for students who major in Psychology. For Sport and Exercise Sciences, we use a wide portfolio of assessment methods, including examinations, essays, presentations and laboratory practicals. These are designed to assess both academic knowledge and prepare students for specific, relevant vocations.
