Psychology is the scientific study of mental life and human behaviour. It explains how we think, feel and act, both individually and as part of a social group.

By studying with us, you’ll explore many different areas of psychology. In some cases, you’ll carry out research using methods, such as brain imaging, interviews and observations.

Our academics have expertise in clinical, cognitive, developmental, environmental, health, neurological and social aspects of psychology. Their aim is to help you develop your analytical skills to explain or predict behaviour.

Our course applies psychological knowledge to a range of issues to overcome real-world problems and make a global impact.
