The course

This broad and flexible course, accredited by the British Psychological Society, provides a thorough grounding in quantitative research methods and the main theoretical areas of psychology. It forms an excellent basis for postgraduate study (such as our own Master's degrees in Clinical Applications and Behavioural Economics), professional qualifications and direct progression into employment in many sectors.

Our staff are accessible, passionate about their subject and recognised internationally in their fields, meaning you will be sharing in the most up-to-date subject knowledge. You will gain a critical awareness of research and theory in cognitive, developmental, biological, social and abnormal psychology as well as skills in communication, presentation and group work. The programme includes opportunities for project work and enrichment opportunities, such as the option to study abroad and a residential weekend in the Windsor Great Park. Later in the course you will select your third-year modules, allowing you to tailor content to your own interests and ambitions.

Fees for Channel Islands students are linked to the Home fee as well as the Office for Students annual funding levels and are therefore subject to change in line with the above statement as well as the annual funding award for the year of study.
