Overview

Business
You don’t need any prior knowledge of business studies before choosing this subject. You will gain a broad introduction to the subject in your first year. If you choose to continue business as a joint subject or increase to major in business you will have access to a range of optional modules allowing you to tailor your studies to your own personal interests.
Your studies in business will prepare you for work in a range of organisations and you will have the opportunity to further prepare for the workplace by taking a one year paid work placement in between your second and final year.
Psychology
This course gives you an advanced understanding of human psychology, and its application in a wide range of settings. You will also develop core transferable skills highly valued by employers such as time management and effective communication skills. Your first year of study will provide you with a good foundation in the subject enabling you to progress on to your second year where your module options will depend on the proportion of time you choose to study psychology for.
Psychology can be studied as a joint or minor subject within the Joint Honours programme. The course does not allow graduate membership to the British Psychological Society but this can be obtained through a further year of study on a Psychology Conversion Course
