Overview

Our courses have been designed to develop you as the psychologist of the future. From innovative and career-focussed assessments to understanding the challenges global societies will face in the future, including; artificial intelligence, automation and big data, your course will equip you with the skills and aptitude to make a difference, whilst providing you with experiential opportunities. Courses are accredited by the British Psychological Society (BPS), putting you in a great position when you’re starting your career.

Whatever your course (business, clinical, counselling, forensic, psychology or sport and exercise psychology), you will be taught by specialist practitioners whose work is underpinned by contemporary research. You will learn from real-world experience, share in cutting-edge research and experience a genuine taste of the work you could be doing after you graduate. You will also notice your lecturers have plenty of time for you – whenever you need help, you can arrange to see them. It’s something our students say they really appreciate.

Your career in psychology starts here, and your lecturers will work with you to help you shape your career path in a variety of ways. They will recommend for example: further study (including our postgraduate courses in occupational, business, forensic and coaching psychology), opportunities for volunteering, and international experiences such as a year or semester abroad.
