I’m at the stage where I’m choosing unis to apply for.
I think I’ve narrowed it down to 4.
UWE, Aston, Staffordshire (they offer a placement year which I’d really like to do) and Chichester (no placement year but I like the uni.
Can anyone recommend these unis (or others) and give me some more info please? Are they well known for their psychology departments? Which unis are?

Thank you

Hi AJMuzz23

It’s great to hear you’re considering Staffs.

There are a few things to consider when choosing a psychology degree/university:

- Are the courses accredited by the British Psychological Society (BPS)? If not, you may struggle to progress onto a Masters/further study
- Does the university offer a placement year? If so, do they offer you help finding a placement?
- What are the facilities like - and will you actually receive training on them and get to use them in your research projects?

Please give us a shout if you have any specific Qs about Staffs

Thanks

Amy

Hi there,

Those are all great options, I'm glad you're considering Aston in the mix.
The Psychology BSc degree at Aston is accredited by the British Psychological Society (BPS) and confers eligibility for the Graduate Membership (CPsychol) of the BPS, which is vital for students who wish to ultimately train as a professional psychologist (clinical, educational, forensic, occupational, etc). It is also the first step towards becoming a Chartered Psychologist.

You will have the opportunity to take a psychology or a related professional placement year in the UK or overseas. Taking a placement year gives you valuable life experience in the context of working alongside professionals in a working environment, helps you to develop new skills and abilities, and gives you a competitive edge in the job market.

During the course of the degree, you will be taught using a combination of informative large-scale interactive lectures, tutorials, and lab sessions, where you will learn key practical skills for psychological research; plus there will be opportunities to work with expert staff on a one-to-one basis. In addition to subject-specific knowledge and skills, The psychology course at Aston actively embeds employability into every aspect of your study, so that you are job-ready upon graduation.

Hope this has helped.
