Our portfolio of programmes, all of which are accredited by the British Psychological Society, are distinctive in their applied approach to Psychology.  Our programmes also benefit from being in a School with a strong professional emphasis and are the first step towards becoming a practicing psychologist, whether it be in the field of clinical, educational, occupational, counselling, health or forensic psychology.  As well as providing a route into professional psychology, a degree in this field is relevant to a wide range of other areas of work including social welfare, sport & leisure, education and human resource management.

UEL offers programmes in psychology, which are designed explicitly to provide students with a comprehensive and critical understanding of the core principles of psychology, also maximize our students’ transferable skills and employability. This is achieved through our extensive academic and skills curriculum, the applied nature of our modules and being taught by our experienced staff who are renowned for the publication records, many of whom are practitioners themselves.

Students follow a programme that covers the core areas of psychology, such as the biological basis of behaviour, individual differences, development through the lifespan and the influence of social contexts on behaviour.  We also offer one of the widest ranges of optional modules of any psychology department. As well as options in the professional areas, we also provide modules in work based learning, positive and personal psychology, evolutionary psychology and animal behaviour, psychopharmacology and addictive behaviours, parapsychology, political and community psychology and the psychology of relationships.
