Psychology is the study of the human mind, all its complexities, and how they affect an individual's behaviour, characteristics and attitude. If you choose not to pursue a career as a professional psychologist then the knowledge and skills you acquire throughout your studies will be applicable in a number of other employment settings.

Our School of Life and Medical Sciences has one of the UK's largest university psychology departments. Employing upwards of 80 staff, many of whom are highly qualified psychologists, and offering advanced technological facilities, students who study with us gain an informed knowledge of their chosen profession, and enter their careers with the full range of skills, knowledge and expertise required for this field.
