This degree will provide you with a broad understanding of psychology as a natural and experimental science, offering a biological approach to studying the subject.  You will cover the main subject areas of psychology with modules such as Cognitive Psychology, Language Acquisition and Consciousness and Causality, but these will be integrated by our biological approach, so you will also study modules such as Evolution, Fundamentals of Neurobiology and Animal Physiology.

Our programme is accredited by the British Psychological Society (BPS). This gives graduates the opportunity to gain Graduate Membership of the Society – the starting point for a career in psychology – and acts as a mark of quality that employers understand and value. To be eligible, you must successfully complete the Psychology Research Project in your third year and gain at least a second class honours degree (i.e. an overall pass mark of at least 50%).
