Overview

Programme Aims

Psychology is the science of mind and behaviour: how and why we act and think as we do. The value of psychological expertise is now recognised in all walks of life: able to handle and present complex arguments and also organise and analyse different forms of evidence, psychology graduates can explore a wide range of rewarding career possibilities.

Recent innovations in research technology and scientific approaches to the subject make this an exciting time to study psychology. For those with an interest in psychological theory and new developments, many opportunities exist for psychology graduates to continue in research positions after graduation.

The School of Psychology at the University of Leicester has a long-established reputation for the quality of its undergraduate courses. These are taught through lectures, seminars, discussion groups and practical projects carried out in one of our many specialist laboratories. We have a large and well equipped school, with talented staff who have interests in both pure and applied aspects of psychology.

Our research-led teaching means you will learn from leading academics delivering cutting-edge knowledge. We also provide you with the opportunity to conduct your own psychological research, from design right through to analysis of data and write-up – developing your academic and practical experimentation skills in our dedicated research facilities.

Research methods are an integral part of the course, enabling you to design and conduct your own psychological experiments and ensuring that you are fully competent in the use of the statistical methods and software required to analyse the data you collect. As well as a thorough grounding in contemporary issues and findings in psychology, your degree will also equip you with useful transferable skills in fields such as communication, information retrieval and data evaluation.

The Psychology with Cognitive Neuroscience programme is offered at the UNiversity of Leicester.
