Our Psychology degrees examine how humans function biologically, socially and mentally, linking theoretical concepts to real-world situations and exploring the differences that make each of us unique.
Our degrees in Psychology, Educational Psychology, and Sport and Exercise Psychology are accredited by the British Psychological Society. You can also gain the Graduate Basis for Chartered Membership of the British Psychological Society on our Psychology and Criminology degree where the balance of modules will focus on Psychology.
Non-accredited degrees are available if you would prefer to study Criminology and Psychology in equal depth or wish to combine the disciplines of forensic psychology and applied criminology and specialise in Psychosocial Analysis of Offending Behaviour.
For me, helping people is the most meaningful thing I can imagine being able to do as a career.

The £6m Law and Psychology building provides contemporary teaching and learning facilities for students in the Department of Psychology and the Department of Law and Criminology.
The three-storey building includes a 250-seat lecture theatre, seminar and tutorial rooms, and social learning areas which encourage a more informal and interactive style of learning. There are also specially designed experimental facilities for psychological research.
Psychology resources include state-of-the-art eye trackers, transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) methods, and near-infrared spectroscopy (NIRS) for examining cognitive functioning and brain activity. Other specialist laboratories include a group testing laboratory, two bi-directional observation rooms, a ‘bar simulation laboratory’ (for alcohol research), audio-visual suites and dedicated IT facilities equipped with subject specific software installed to support experimental work.
