Why study Psychology at Warwick?
- You will be stretched by a flexible science-based psychology degree. The range of topics you’ll study encompasses all you would expect from a BPS accredited programme but allows you the freedom, should you want it, to draw in disciplines such as business, biology, economics, sociology and modern languages by taking relevant modules. If you are drawn to particular strands of psychology, optional third-year modules will allow you to focus on the areas that interest you most.
- We are widely recognised as one of the UK’s top research departments working closely with the NHS, the police, and international bodies such as the World Health Organisation. Research areas range from improving sleep to paying attention when driving, from decision-making among police to communication between babies, and from online bullying to eating disorders. Our BPS-commended facilities include sleep labs, a Jaguar Land Rover driving simulator, and an infant laboratory, which you will be encouraged to make use of in your final-year project.
- You’ll be taught by supportive academics at the very cutting edge of their field – over 90% of our submitted research was rated ‘world leading or ‘internationally excellent’ in the 2014 Research Excellence Framework – who provide an inspiring learning experience. Unusually, you will conduct compulsory research projects in the first, second and third years of our degree. By nurturing the researcher in you from the offset, you’ll develop critical skills that will boost your CV and which you can readily transfer to further study or the workplace.
