Psychology is the scientific study of the mind and behaviour. Topics we cover include how babies learn, the way in which people's mental skills change as they grow older, personalities types, and social group dynamics. You will also study different psychological disorders.

You will also learn how to think critically and to solve problems. We will teach you to analyse data, write clearly and effectively, and be a confident communicator of science. You will learn how to plan, implement, and analyse your own research project.

At Levels 1 and 2 you’ll also study additional Social Science subjects, such as Geography, Politics, and Life Sciences modules for those that are eligible.

Our student-run Psychology Society organises social events, study skills sessions, and a range of academic and career-oriented talks.
