If you are fascinated with behaviour and wonder why people do what they do, then our psychology course – which is accredited by the British Psychological Society (BPS) – will be ideal for your questioning mind.
As a psychology student at Wrexham GlyndÅµr University you will have access to a diverse range of facilities including our psychometric lab, flight simulator, high-tech sports performance lab, experimental cubicles and simulation lab.
On this hands-on, practical degree, you'll discover the fascinating science behind how people think, act, react and interact.
Throughout the course you will gain a greater understanding of social interaction, individual development and the way in which the brain interprets information that we deal with on a daily basis.
The scientific nature of psychology is emphasised throughout the course with specific modules relating to social psychology, developmental psychology, individual differences, cognitive psychology, and psychobiology. You will develop your statistical and research skills through regular laboratory based practicals and in the final part of the course you will complete a substantial final project on a topic of your choice.

Great lectures and teaching, the staff are so friendly. The two libraries are huge, too, and the dedicated humanities library in particular is a big help. The racecourse stadium also holds the rugby world cup, which is really exciting! You'll spend a lot of great nights at Central Station and Liquid and Envy. There's also a load of great theatres, like Grove Park, and loads of great gigs on down The Old Swan and Penny Blacks. There's so much to do!

I think the campus is a suitable enough side to easily become accustomed to. All staff I have come across are friendly and always willing to help. The site has many facilities such as a sports centre and clubs to join in on to help you adjust to uni life more efficiently. Town is only a short distance away with many shops and places to chose from. Large car parking space and bus stop right outside the gates of the university.

Fun about 90% of the time in my first year, due to freshers. Had to calm down a bit in my second year and get on with essays as had so many, so fun went down to 50%, and now starting my final year full of dread and stress. but overall, university has been good to me.
