Psychology

Psychology is the scientific study of the relationship between the mind, brain and behaviour. Students will study the psychological and neuro-scientific processes that underpin activities such as thinking, reasoning, memory and language, learn the consequences of brain injury and explore ways to improve health-related behaviour. Psychology graduates tend to be highly numerate and possess high-quality essay writing and critical analysis skills. Students develop effective team working and problem-solving skills, good ICT abilities, the skills needed for independent research and excellent oral communication skills. With these transferable and valuable attributes, psychology graduates have much to offer to a variety of employers. As more businesses recruit from a global pool of talent, we are finding new ways to help our students stand out from the crowd. We support and encourage you to take advantage of opportunities for studying and working abroad which could: - Reward you with an international outlook and cultural awareness. - Help you gain confidence and become more self-reliant. - Give you independence and initiative for the best possible start to your career. All students commencing the three-year BSc (Hons) Psychology degree have the option of transferring to the Psychology with a Year abroad Undergraduate Programme. Popular destinations include: Hong Kong, Germany, The Netherlands, North America, Australia, Poland, and Ireland. • The Department of Psychology is ranked in the top third of all psychology departments in the UK (Complete University Guide, 2016). • EMPLOYABILITY: 90% of Swansea University Psychology students go on to work and/or study six months after graduating (Unistats,2015). • ACCREDITATION: The Psychology Degree is validated by the British Psychological Society (BPS) and (providing that a minimum of a Second Class Honours Degree, Division Two is achieved) confers eligibility for Graduate Membership of the BPS and for the Graduate Basis for Chartered Membership (GBC). The latter is the first step to becoming a Chartered Psychologist. Visit our employability pages to read our graduate success stories: http://www.swansea.ac.uk/humanandhealthsciences/employability/
