    Course Summary

    The University of the West of Scotland offers a BSc in Psychology which is perfect for nearly any student who wants to learn about how the mind works – how we think, feel, remember and process the world around us. You’ll learn about the human brain as well as how to apply the principles you’ll become familiar with to real world scenarios and the problems people face in their daily lives. You’ll also learn how to conduct and analyse psychological research.

    This course is accredited by the British Psychological Society, and successful completion of the program qualifies students for graduate-basis membership in that organisation. You would stil cove to complete some training to qualify for full Chartered Psychologist status and begin a practice of your own – perhaps as an Educational, Industrial, Clinical, Counselling or Forensic Psychologist – but you would be a long way into the process. You would, of course, have many other career options upon graduation.

    If you are changing direction after starting in another career area, you will possess valuable work experience and professional awareness. Many employers actively seek candidates with these benefits. Our network of contacts, a dedicated employability service and a reputation in the legal profession mean we also have an outstanding track-record of finding students legal employment.Many employers favour GDL students in an increasingly competitive legal job market. Through studying another degree subject, you will have gained many transferable skills. By taking the conversion route into law, you are showing motivation and determination by choosing law at a later stage than some others. This looks good to employers.
