Overview

[00:00:09] Luke The fact the Birmingham City University psychology courses are accredited by the British Psychological Society is really important to me because not only does that mean that I know the course has a very high standard of quality, but it also means I know that if I ever want to look for a psychology related jobs after my degree, I can do so due to the accreditation of the course has.

[00:00:30] Rachael One of the things that stood out about a psychology course here was the modules. They modules such as health psychology, which was beneficial for my career, but there were interesting modules such as parapsychology, which I didn't see other universities doing so it was something that stood out to me.

[00:00:46] Luke Birmingham City University's facilities for psychology are absolutely amazing, you know, from software packages like SPSS and AR that allow me to do my data analysis to the best of my ability, to hardware like eye tracking facilities that allow me to do experiments that other universities may not allow me to do. It gives me the opportunity to do my research and do absolutely everything that I'm doing here at my university to the best of my ability.

How you learn

At the start of your learning journey, we will manage your transition into university by introducing you to core psychological knowledge and promoting the development of intellectual, research, employability and independent learning skills.

In your second year, you will refine these skills and develop critical thinking.  The final stages of your degree involve application of these skills in research, real-world and employability contexts, ensuring that you are a well-rounded, employable graduate that can easily adapt to the continuing societal changes presented in the 21st century. 

Over the course of your degree, there will be increased emphasis on practical and transferrable skills. You will collect, comprehend and examine data effectively, becoming increasingly computer literate in a number of statistical packages and experimental equipment.  As you progress, you will also learn more advanced areas of qualitative and quantitative psychology.  You will then be able to apply these skills in your final year as part of your Integrative Psychology Project, in which you will address a novel problem in a research area of your choice.

Examples of formative activities include essays, research proposals, semi-formal debates, individual group presentations, multiple choice questionnaires, quizzes, online forums and mock exams.  We also offer scheduled one-to-one meetings and office hours for more detailed feedback if required. The formative activities will help you complete your summative assessments with a clear focus and confidently.  

Trips and Visits

Previous trips have included visiting the Science Museum in London, getting to see some of the museum’s acclaimed science exhibitions, and learning first-hand key processes and information.

Mandip Kaur Narewal

I chose to study Psychology at Birmingham City University mainly because the course had been accredited by the BPS. Not only that, the university received accreditation after its first inspection, and is the only post-1992 university to have done this. It had also received great reviews from the previous year which really influenced me. Even better, since I lived locally, all this was offered on my doorstep.
