Psychology Department

Welcome to the Psychology Department at the University of Buckingham, the number one university for student satisfaction in the UK (National Student Survey 2006-2013). Psychology is the study of human behaviour and mental processes. Psychology scientifically investigates how thoughts, feelings and motivations influence how people act and interact with others.

We offer:

  • The only 2-year psychology undergraduate degree in the UK.
  • One of the best staff to student ratios in the UK: 1 member of staff for every 11.4 students.
  • A unique 2+1 degree opportunity for students to obtain a BSc (Hons) and MSc (by research) in three years.
  • Small tutorial groups for every course: a maximum of six students in a tutorial group.
  • Tutorials run by teaching staff; not by postgraduate students or graduate teaching assistants.
  • Undergraduate degree containing courses introducing students to six areas of professional psychology.
  • Two entry points onto the same programme in September (2 years and 3 months) and January (2 years).
  • An active Psychology Society

The programme is accredited as conferring eligibility for the Graduate Basis for Chartered Membership of the BPS (British Psychological Society), provided the minimum standard of a Second Class Honours is achieved. This is the first step towards becoming a Chartered Psychologist.
