A commitment to the delivery of high-quality teaching by leading researchers and practising professionals means that studying psychology at BU can help you to make the most of your career opportunities. You will be taught by experienced researchers and practitioners of clinical psychology, health psychology, neuropsychology and forensic psychology ensuring that taught content is backed up by up-to-date research.

We have established links with organisations and employers, such as the National Health Service, the police, the Shelley Park Neurocare Centre and charities, to ensure we deliver well-informed, current and timely content relating to practice. Learning is focused around how psychology can be used to help practice, based on a detailed understanding of theory.
