We run a range of undergraduate and postgraduate psychology programmes. Our undergraduate programmes in Psychology are accredited by the British Psychological Society (BPS). We offer a range of streams which permit students to specialise in a chosen realm of study, with a range of optional modules in the final year. Our taught postgraduate programmes cover a range of sub-disciplines in psychology, a number of which have cross-disciplinary or professional emphases. For students pursuing doctoral study, we have a number of funded studentship opportunities, including via the ESRC-funded Doctoral Training Partnership. All of our programmes are lead by our award-winning lecturers and professors. Students are given access to departmental research facilities to undertake their own research projects. Formal and informal professional work experience opportunities are made available for all students to pursue.
