Psychology with Placement Year

This robust psychology programme is fully accredited by the British Psychological Society and enriched by interdisciplinary influences. You will learn to understand human behaviour as the result of an interaction between nature and nurture, biology and culture, genes and the environment. You will explore a range of theoretical ideas and research evidence from core specialist areas, including developmental psychology, social psychology, cognitive psychology, neuroscience, biological psychology and personality psychology. Your course will bridge conventional disciplinary boundaries, taking theories from the behavioural and social sciences and using them to throw light on real-world, practical situations. You will learn about both qualitative and quantitative approaches, from discourse analysis and quasi-experimental questionnaire design through to neuroimaging techniques. You will enjoy access to our state-of-the-art laboratory facilities, including a fully-immersive virtual reality suite, electroencephalography (EEG), eye-tracking and motion-tracking equipment. In your final year you will have the opportunity to demonstrate all you have learned by designing and implementing an individual research project in areas of your interest. In addition to the opportunities we offer to undertake paid internships and other work experience, you may also opt to spend your third year in industry before returning to UEA to complete your final year. During your year in industry you will gain valuable work experience in a field closely related to your degree.
