Newman University, Birmingham has opted into the TEF and received a Silver award.
Psychology is the study of human behaviour. It explores a wide range of fascinating areas from how we think and how we see other people, to how people develop, how relationships are formed, and how we can help people in distress.
Psychology is useful because no matter what you intend to do in life it will involve trying to understand and help other people. Studying Psychology at Newman University provides you with a solid grounding in all core areas of psychology, but your degree with us will confer a specialist knowledge of how psychology is applied to the ‘real world’. Many of our lecturers have specialisms in applied psychology, and this gives this degree programme its distinctive approach and appeal.
