Both the Single Honours and the Combined Honours programme with psychology as a major subject give eligibility for the British Psychological Society’s Graduate Basis for Chartered Membership (GBC) provided that the required modules have been studied.  This is essential for anyone thinking of pursuing a career as a professional psychologist.

Combined Honours students take fewer psychology modules than Single Honours Students, but have the flexibility of studying an additional subject.  You can combine your study of psychology with a wide range of other subjects available at the University, including counselling skills, criminology, animal behaviour and many more.

The Forensic Psychology course allows students to focus on the use of psychology in areas including understanding crime and criminality, criminal investigation and profiling, the criminal justice system, as well as the many specialist areas in which forensic psychologists work. This programme is also accredited by The British Psychological Society as conferring eligibility for the Graduate Basis for Chartered Membership (GBC).

The Applied Psychology course is taught at University Centre Shrewsbury, our innovative new Higher Education institution in the historic town of Shrewsbury. This programme is also accredited by The British Psychological Society as conferring eligibility for the Graduate Basis for Chartered Membership (GBC).
