Psychology - University of Manchester

Our BPS-accredited BSc Psychology degree is a flexible course consisting of compulsory and optional units both within and outside of psychology, preparing you to work in a wide range of professions and sectors. You will study four diverse themes that represent the modern discipline of psychology: mind and brain, evolution and development, adaptability and wellbeing, and psychology in society. You will also be able to experience life as a professional psychologist through our work placement schemes, choosing from integrated 30-hour placements in Year 2 or a year-long placement in Year 3. Read a blog post from one of our placement year students to find out more. We also offer the opportunity to study abroad at one of our partner institutions, depending on academic performance. Our graduates are highly employable and can take their understanding of human behaviour into any workplace. **Special Features** **Work placement options** You will have the opportunity to gain practical experience as a professional psychologist through either 30-hour integrated placements in Year 2 or a full-time, year-long placement in Year 3, subject to meeting our progression criteria. Placements take place at carefully chosen partners including the NHS, local schools, colleges, voluntary organisations and businesses. We have substantial experience in setting up these placements, and you will be able to add relevant work experience to your CV and try out life in your chosen career. **Study abroad option** You may also choose to experience life in another country through our study abroad option, where you can spend a year overseas at one of our partner institutions if you meet our progression criteria. These institutions have previously included Queens University (Canada), University of Sydney (Australia), University of California (USA) and Complutense University of Madrid (Spain). **Dedicated careers units** Designed with the aid of the careers service and in collaboration with our current students, employability-focused units in Years 1 and 2 will ensure that you have the skills and knowledge you need to realise your career goals. Building on basic skills in the first year, Year 2 students can choose between two units (with or without work placement), both designed to enhance student employability by equipping you with skills such as teamwork, communication and leadership, and supporting you in developing a graduate-level CV, portfolio and interview skills.
