The Department of Psychology offers the following undergraduate and postgraduate programmes:
The Psychology BSc will introduce you to the psychological sciences, and help you to explore their application to a variety of contemporary challenges. The course is accredited by the British Psychological Society (BPS), who highlighted five areas of particular strength in our course, including the emphasis on research-led teaching and the potential for students to benefit greatly from the research expertise of our world-leading Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology & Neuroscience (IoPPN).
The aim of the intercalated BSc in Psychology is to provide medical students with a one year, in-depth, critical understanding of research, theory and empirical findings in core areas of psychology. We will also teach you key transferable research skills and knowledge, which you will apply to a research project.
