Why study this course

This course is aimed at students who wish to extend their understanding of Psychology, to become better prepared for a quality employment situation, or who wish to aim for a further degree. It is specifically aimed at those who do not want to actively conduct lab-based research, and would prefer to focus on synthesising current knowledge in new and meaningful ways. The course is run by one of the largest and most active Psychology departments in Britain with an excellent reputation for both teaching and research.

You do not need a degree in Psychology (we only ask that your first degree has some Psychology content).
