About BSc Psychology

Our Psychology degree is recognised by the British Psychological Society (BPS) as qualification for graduate registration and our course is specifically designed to meet its requirements.

In the first year you will study psychology, research methods (laboratory classes and statistics) and an open unit in another school.

In the second year you will focus on research methods and units in the Psychology core curriculum.

The final year of the degree is entirely option-based, with selection from a range of lecture and seminar courses together with a research project.
