In this British Psychological Society (BPS) accredited course you can immerse yourself in the study of people and their actions, emotions and thinking.

You'll also have plenty of opportunities to put this theory into practice, understanding how the theories apply to working with people, during placement and working with other students.

You'll be required to attend University three days per week. The days are fixed to be the same three days throughout the year which allows you to balance study with your other life commitments. You will be expected to undertake independent study outside of your timetabled sessions.
