Flexible Learning

Feature 2

You can choose to study psychology exclusively, or alongside another subject in a Combined Degree.  In your first year, we teach you the fundamentals of psychology:  developmental psychology, brain and behaviour, cognitive psychology and social psychology, but as you work through your degree, we encourage you to explore topics of your own choice.


The topics that you will study are acknowledged by British Psychological Society as being eligible for Graduate Basis for Chartered Membership accreditation, which is the first step to becoming a Chartered Psychologist.
