It is delivered by instructors who are themselves world renowned researchers – in fact, the Research Excellence Framework of 2014 reported that 100% of the department’s research was either ‘internationally excellent’ or ‘world leading’ in quality.

You’ll gain the scientific background and theoretical perspectives you’ll need to succeed in this field, as well as getting the voluntary work experience you’ll need to prove yourself to employers. You’ll also have access to content that is all but unique to Roehampton, like the Arts and Play Therapies modules.

    The program is quite flexible. Because it shares the same first year content as all of the university’s other Psychology BA programs, you can switch between programs easily throughout your first year.
