This three-year programme, accredited by the British Psychological Society, exposes you to a very wide coverage of the field of psychology. It includes the opportunity for a measure of specialisation within your studies, so you can make informed and rational decisions about your future career.
The first two years of the programme span the field of psychology while the third offers considerable choice of topics according to your main interests and aims.
The UCL Division of Psychology & Language Sciences is one of the largest centres of psychology teaching and research in the UK. Its cutting-edge research is internationally recognised.
The programme is accredited and audited by the British Psychological Society (BPS). Graduates are eligible to become members of the BPS, which is the starting point for a career in psychology.
Excellent resources include our up-to-date web-based system, which makes all teaching materials (including course outlines, lecture presentation slides, handouts, video recordings of lectures) available to all registered students.
In each year of your degree you will take a number of individual modules, normally valued at 0.5 or 1.0 credits, adding up to a total of 4.0 credits for the year. Modules are assessed in the academic year in which they are taken. The balance of compulsory and optional modules varies from programme to programme and year to year. A 1.0 credit is considered equivalent to 15 credits in the European Credit Transfer System (ECTS).
The first two years of your degree comprise a combination of compulsory and optional modules. Compulsory modules make up the majority of credits in both years and include the study of experimental design in psychology, the neurological underpinnings of behaviour, health and clinical psychology, language, cognition, individual differences, social psychology and perception.
Optional modules in the first two years may be taken from a wide variety of subjects, in the arts or sciences, taught within UCL.
In your final year, all modules are taken in psychology and you will undertake a compulsory research project on a subject of your choice. Your project will be supervised by a staff member and will be an empirical and usually experimental piece of research which utilises the skills you have learned previously.
