Course summary

TEF Gold

Staffordshire University has opted into the TEF and received a Gold award.

Find out more about the TEF.

Our Psychology and Counselling degree will provide you with an excellent grounding in academic psychology and will introduce you to the world of therapeutic practice.

To help you build a deep understanding of the human mind you’ll study social psychology, individual differences, biological psychology, research methods and cognitive psychology. The course is perfect if you are interested in working with people experiencing difficult circumstances and is an ideal basis for further study to qualify as a counsellor.

Completing this degree means you can apply directly to Masters or postgraduate counselling courses that lead to British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) registration. If you decide not to pursue the further training necessary to become a professional counsellor or psychotherapist, you will still develop key academic competences, such as self-understanding, communication and relationship skills that are vital to employment success.

On successful completion of study, we will issue one of the following awards dependent on your chosen pathway: BSc (Hons) Psychology and Counselling, BSc (Hons) Psychological Studies - Students who choose not to, or who are unable to, follow an accredited route can transfer to BSc (Hons) Psychological Studies.
