About BSc Psychology at University of Reading Malaysia

Understanding people and their behaviour is a complex matter; but once you do, it can be highly rewarding.

At the University of Reading Malaysia, we study psychology at many levels – from how the brain functions to the ways that individuals are affected by membership of a group. Learning from internationally regarded experts, you’ll be introduced to the latest evidence relating to a wide range of topics in the field of psychology, gaining a solid grounding in all the core areas of the discipline. And you will undertake work placements and applied projects that encourage you to link the topics you are studying to the issues experienced in ‘real world’ settings.

Throughout the programme, you will be made aware of current research – its concepts, methods, findings and unresolved issues – and you will learn both how to evaluate others’ research and how to carry it out yourself.

In your final year, you will be able to tailor the course to your own areas of interest and career ambitions. You will study the latest research evidence relating to a selection of topics from psychology and neuroscience in depth. You will carry out an original research project that will add to current knowledge in that field and discover how psychological research can impact real life practices in education, health and industry.

The BSc psychology programme at the University of Reading Malaysia is accredited by the British Psychological Society (BPS), the professional body that oversees the quality of psychology degree provision in the UK. This accreditation gives our graduates eligibility for Graduate Basis for Chartered (GBC) Membership, and through this access to postgraduate training courses in UK and elsewhere.
