This engaging British Psychology Society (BPS) accredited course combines a comprehensive training in psychology with the study of criminal behaviour, types of crime and knowledge of the criminal justice system. Our students benefit from academic experts, weekly research seminars and have access to dedicated undergraduate laboratory suites.
This course covers all the core areas of Psychology stipulated by the BPS curriculum. This accounts for two-thirds of the course and includes the workings of the brain, the processes and mechanisms of human thinking, feeling and behaviour and how psychologists, psychological research and therapy can make a tangible and positive difference to society and people’s lives. The remaining third considers the social-cultural implications of crime and criminality and the contexts in which crimes are committed and understood. Core modules may include: Introduction to Psychology, Introduction to the Criminal Justice System, Understanding Crime and Society, Research Methods in Psychology, Statistics One, Explaining Criminal Behaviour, Cognitive and Biological Psychology, Penology, Policing, Psychology Research Project and Advanced Psychology. In your final year you will also be able to select an optional Psychology module and an optional Criminology module.

A lower offer may be made based on a range of factors, including your background (such as where you live and the school or college you attended), your experiences and individual circumstances (you may have been in care, for example). This is called a contextual offer and we get data from UCAS to make these decisions. NTU offers a student experience like no other, and this approach helps us to find students who have the potential to succeed here, but may have faced barriers that can make it more difficult to access university. We also consider equivalent qualifications and combinations. Please contact Nottingham Trent University Admissions team for further information.
The student satisfaction data is from students surveyed during the Covid-19 pandemic. The number of student respondents and response rates can be important in interpreting the data – it is important to note your experience may be different from theirs. This data will be based on the subject area rather than the specific course. Read more about this data on the Discover Uni website.
