  • 96% of our students are in work or further study six months after graduating (UK domicile full-time first degree leavers; Destinations of Leavers from Higher Education survey, for the academic year 2016/17 published by the Higher Education Statistics Agency 2018).

  • Our degrees are fully accredited by the British Psychological Society (BPS) meaning our students are eligible for the graduate basis for chartered membership of the BPS.

  • Students have an opportunity to spend a semester abroad at one of our selected European Partner Universities, which currently include universities in Italy, Germany, Holland, Hungary, Norway and Denmark.

Our state-of-the-art facilities include an electroencephalography (EEG) machine for measuring activity in the brain. We have a Brain Stimulation Laboratory equipped with equipment for transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) and transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS), an Eye Tracking Laboratory, an Audiometric Laboratory, and much more.
