Psychology with Clinical Psychology and a Placement Year is a four-year programme, you spend a year in practice between your second and final years.

Our modules cover a wide range of topics such as child development, language, mental health, motivation, and forensic psychology. By drawing on aspects of biology, computing and philosophy, you gain a broad scientific and analytical background. You can also gain direct experience of research through the:

• Research Participation Scheme (where you take part in a project as a participant)
• Research Experience Scheme (where you gain hands-on experience of working on a project and a reference at the end)
• Work Experience Scheme (where you volunteer with a local organisation – such as a school, college, prison or hospital – and collaborate on a project)

At Stage 3, you take specialist clinical psychology modules and can also choose other specialist modules in areas of particular interest to you. All your work will help you to demonstrate transferable skills valued by employers.

The lecturers have a friendly approach to teaching and you get a high level of academic support via lectures, seminars and one-to-one feedback.
