    Course Summary

    The combined BSc in Human Biology and Psychology from the University of Worcester has an emphasis on health and disease, and is delivered by staff with extensive biomedical qualifications as well as by staff specialising in cutting edge psychological research.  

    You’ll learn a scientific perspective on human behaviour, experience and psychological function as well as a deep understanding of the physiological basis for human life and thought. You’ll also be able to pursue your own interests by selecting optional modules from year 2.

    This program is unique in that you have the option to switch to a single BSc in Psychology at the end of your first year, if that career pathway seems more compelling at that time. Switching to a single BSc in this way would make you eligible for BPS (British Psychological Society) accreditation on graduation. This will put you well on your way to professional status and your own psychological practice.

    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.
