Course content

If you have little or no experience of psychology, this is your chance to gain the knowledge, skills and experience to give you the grounding you'll need for a career in this exciting area. Our course has been accredited by the British Psychological Society (BPS), meaning that once you graduate with an average mark of 50% or more, you will be able to apply for the BPS Graduate Basis for Chartership.

You'll develop the research skills necessary for designing and conducting quality research beyond that expected of graduates. You will gain a comprehensive and critical understanding of cognitive, social, developmental and biological psychology, individual differences and conceptual and historical issues in psychology. We will help build your research skills that you will need for your masters level dissertation.

Our course is relevant to both UK and international graduates, who have not studied psychology before or who have completed an undergraduate degree with a psychology component or an undergraduate psychology course not accredited by the BPS.

Fees and funding

The tuition fee for the year for students entering in 2015/16 is £4500. The amount you will pay may increase each year to take into account the effects of inflation.
