About BSc Psychology in Education with Study Abroad

This is an applied psychology degree which uses psychological research methods to understand and interpret social and human behaviour in the context of education, wherever and whenever it happens throughout people’s lives. As with our BSc Education Studies, education is conceptualised as lifelong and in many different contexts.

The British Psychological Society accreditation means that successful students are eligible to apply for professional training as a psychologist.

If you achieve the required grades at the end of the first year, you will spend your third year at a partner institution overseas. See Global Opportunities to view our partner institutions.

Students acquire valuable skills spanning two rapidly changing disciplines that inform each other. You will be able to apply psychological theory and research to real-life educational settings involving children, adolescents and adults.

The course currently includes an optional placement unit, Education in Practice, where you will have the opportunity to connect your academic learning with the practice of education by conducting a placement within a school, community organisation, charity, museum or other relevant organisation.

Lectures, workshops, seminars, discussions, guided independent study and tutorials offer a well-rounded, evidence-based and flexible basis for professional development. Seminars and workshop activities encourage you to collaborate with others, while individual and group presentations help you develop confidence in conveying your arguments and ideas.
