Study Psychology

We offer an exciting undergraduate portfolio consisting of two BSc (Hons) degrees in Psychology and Psychology with Criminology, all of which are accredited by the British Psychological Society (BPS) to provide Graduate Basis for Chartered Membership (GBC): an entry requirement for many Society accredited postgraduate training courses and is required for entry to all accredited Stage 2 and Doctoral programmes as part of the route to becoming a Chartered Psychologist.

For non-psychology graduates we offer an MSc in Psychology which also provides GBC. We are proud to boast that this latter programme has been designed for, and is delivered exclusively to the MSc Psychology cohort and does not rely on modules from the undergraduate portfolio. Our postgraduate portfolio also boasts three BPS-accredited professional masters degrees in Health Psychology, Occupational Psychology and Sport & Exercise Psychology, an MRes in Psychology and a Professional Doctorate in Occupational Psychology.
