    Course Summary

    The University of Hertfordshire’s Psychology BSc program has earned a reputation for intellectual rigour, academic excellence and practical value to employers. It is fully accredited by the BPS, and is considered one of the best courses of its kind in the UK today. You’ll gain a thorough understanding of all of the different fields within the discipline, and will prepare you for professional or master’s level work.

    This course includes the option of taking a year abroad to study psychology at one of the University of Hertfordshire’s partner institutions in Europe, Australia or the Americas. A year abroad will be a wonderful opportunity to build wide ranging skills within your intended specialty, and also to begin building a contact network at a time when other students are still behind a desk. Essentially, it will give you a global perspective on the human condition and ways to address psychological illness and distress.

    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.
