About Psychology at Bournemouth University

This course accredited by the British Psychological Society, so it covers the core British Psychological Society syllabus. The accreditation means when you graduate, you are eligible for Graduate Basis for Chartership; the first step towards becoming a Chartered Psychologist, providing you gain at least a Second Class Honours.

During your degree you’ll participate in practical classes that will equip you with the necessary skills to conduct your own empirical investigations of psychological phenomena, which you’ll carry out on regular occasions. What’s more, in your final year you'll get the opportunity to work closely with a member of the academic team to carry out your own experiments and research.

As well as practical skills, you’ll learn theory covering a range of psychological approaches, including social, biological, developmental and cognitive psychology, as well as studying more specialist topics, such as forensic, clinical, cyber psychology, environmental psychology, and disorders such as autism, dyslexia and prosopagnosia (face blindness).

So that you graduate primed for a career in the industry, there is the opportunity to gain invaluable experience during a 30-week work placement, plus as a final year student, you’ll have the option to specialise in a field of psychology, for example education, forensic, clinical or environmental psychology, to mould a curriculum that benefits your passions and ambitions.

92% of our final year students said they have been able to contact staff when they needed to, join us on live chat now to find out more, or register to meet us at an open day.
