Psychology is always looking ahead. Learn how to create a better future and master the sought-after skills modern technology can’t mimic. Our four BSc degrees are accredited by the British Psychological Society and cover everything from sport and exercise to education and criminology. Our teaching team specialise in important areas like cyberpsychology and addiction – you might even work alongside them as a paid intern.

In our brand new £6m Law & Psychology building, we’ll help you develop uniquely human skills – you’ll be able to show employers you can think creatively, communicate effectively and collaborate on research projects.

When you graduate, build on your expertise with postgraduate study or apply your skills to careers in everything from health psychology to advertising. 97.3% of our Psychology graduates are employed or in further study 15 months after graduation (Graduate Outcomes Survey 2019/20).

On this page you’ll find 360 tours of our facilities, videos and features to give you an insight into what it’s like to study Psychology at Edge Hill.


The £6m Law and Psychology building provides contemporary teaching and learning facilities for students in the Department of Psychology.

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.
