Find out more about the TEF.

This course is primarily designed for face to face learning with you attending your lessons for the specified hours within the validation document. However, there may be periods of study where the government advises TEC Partnership that it is not safe to open campuses or there is limited access due to social distancing measures. If the Campus is closed TEC Partnership will continue to deliver your sessions online and offer you the necessary support and resources remotely. If there is limited access due to social distancing measures a blended model will be adopted with some lessons happening in small groups and others happening using online sessions and support. The Psychology course at Grimsby is well established and has an excellent reputation for providing high quality provision. Staff have knowledge in both pure and applied aspects of psychology, with research interests in several areas. Psychology aims to deliver and credit students with the diverse knowledge and range of skills that make them highly employable across a range of professions that offer real prospects. BSc Psychology aims to deliver skills employers value, such as numerical skills, the ability to understand and work with statistics and to design and conduct research, effective communication and the ability to work productively in teams. BSc Psychology will allow the student to progress onto master’s programmes not only in psychology but in other subject areas. Psychology graduates for example, can move into careers in Management, Finance, Social Work, Probation, Prison Services, Health Promotion, Neuroscience, Advertising, Counselling, Education, Health Professions, Human Resources. They also have the option to progress in professional areas of psychology, such as Forensic Psychology, Clinical Psychology, Sports Psychology and Health Psychology. Psychology is a broad subject area, and can operate as a 'hub' subject, contributing to many of the big questions and challenges facing society. Whatever the particular topic of study, and wherever the origins of its methods, Psychology attempts to analyse and explain behaviour in a systematic, reproducible way. There is a strong relationship between theory and empirical data, the results of which may find their expression in applications to education, health, industry/commerce and other situations. To summarise, Psychology is a discipline concerning experience, thought and behaviour that is of immense range and depth. It has evolved its own methodologies from those found in cognate areas. A degree in Psychology implies an understanding of historical and contemporary psychological research alongside an appreciation of current and previous theoretical efforts to integrate and interpret empirical findings. A particular strength of training in Psychology is the acquisition of critical thinking skills, which are developed within a context of rigorous empirical methodology. Psychology can enable other subjects to converge on shared solutions. The degree follows the recommended curriculum of the British Psychological Society (BPS) but does not offer Graduate Basis for Chartered Membership (GBC), this would need to be achieved by undertaking a conversion programme at Masters level.
