Psychology is the scientific study of what it is to be human. To study psychology is to learn, not only about others, but also ourselves. We are passionate about psychology and want to ignite and inspire your enthusiasm. Our teaching is underpinned by our research (rated as ‘world leading’ and ‘internationally excellent’), practice (our staff have extensive practitioner experience) and a deep commitment to our students.

Our modules bring you the full spectrum of psychology – covering core areas such as Cognition, Neuropsychology, Social and Developmental Psychology as well as specialist fields such as Autism, Mental Health, Positive and Forensic psychology. In examining these areas, we support you in developing your capacity to think and write like a psychologist – helping you to engage deeply and meaningfully with this diverse and stimulating discipline.

The discipline of psychology provides an excellent basis for your future path. You may choose to pursue a specialist career in Forensic, Educational or Clinical Psychology, or use the excellent transferable skills that our psychology degree provides to support other professional careers within the commercial, charitable or entrepreneurial sectors. The opportunity to study psychology at degree level is precious and we want you to cherish it and benefit from it throughout your life
