Psychology is the study of people: how they think, act, react and interact. Psychologists scientifically study all kinds of behaviour and the thoughts, feelings and motivations underlying behaviour. Psychology examines questions such as: how do people act on a first date? How can we ease the effects of parental divorce on children? How can we make teams work efficiently? How can we help people to overcome depression or phobias?
By collecting information about what people do, think, perceive and feel, psychologists answer questions about human behaviour, cognition and development. This programme offers the full scope of a psychology degree but with an additional focus on Forensic Psychology.
Forensic Psychology applies psychological theory to understanding criminal behaviour, reducing offending, and understanding victim responses to offending behaviour. It also examines how psychology plays a role in the criminal justice system more generally.

Canterbury is a great place for students, with loads of us about. There are a huge range of students from all over the world here, and everyone is really welcoming and friendly. The streets are beautiful, there are loads of great shops and cafes in town. Club Chemistry and Chill are where the majority of students go, but I found a lot of evenings went by nicely in The Penny Theatre, which has nice cheap pints and food. The professors are amazing, and the support services are constant and very helpful, and I felt completely supported academically.
The university is in a wonderful location, the people here are all very friendly and open. The lecturers are engaged with all of us and keep me interested in the topic throughout. Student support is everywhere and I would not have imagined settling into uni would be so easy.
