"We have a number of pathways which allow a student to specialise in an area such as forensic psychology, development psychology, sport and exercise science, business, counselling," said Matthew Jellis, Acting Head of Psychology. "So, if students want to go on to become professional psychologist, it sets them up with that career pathway’s basic underpinnings. We give our students unique opportunities for practice placements. We have an active work experience programme in the department, helping students to access voluntary and paid positions that help increase their employability."

The course is a basis for accreditation with the BPS society, which is essential for psychologists. I also like the fact that all of my lecturers are working in this field and tell us about their own research – it helps you realize what you can achieve.
