    Course Summary

    The study of psychology is the study of behaviour. Of the brain where behaviour originates, and of the mind which shapes and understands it. Psychology underpins every human interaction we have, formal and informal, professional, commercial, legal or otherwise. You can tailor this course to reflect your own interests, and even make your own contribution to the field with your final independent research project.

    The University of Birmingham’s Honours Psychology BSc program is designed to give you a broad understanding of this very wide-ranging field, and to give you the understanding you need to make a career psychology for yourself. In fact, the University of Birmingham’s School of Psychology was ranked highest in terms of employability by the Russel Group in their Destination of Leavers from Higher Education survey for the year of 2015/2016.

    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.
