Available for September Entry English Language Foundation programme

The BSc (Hons) Psychology programme offers theoretical knowledge and practical application of psychology to real world problems. Students will learn about the mind and behaviour, enabling them to understand the way people act, react and interact. They will consider the roles of the brain and the nervous system upon behaviour, perception, mood and memory. The overall aims of the programme are to: > Provide a stimulating and supportive learning environment that gives the opportunity to develop potential.

  • Provide an up-to-date curriculum in psychology that emphasises the development of skills and knowledge related to the scientific and empirical aspects of the discipline;
  • Provide choice and flexibility in the curriculum while maintaining those core aspects of the syllabus needed to secure British Psychological Society recognition;
  • Foster the development of key skills that will facilitate further academic and vocational training and sub sequent employment;
  • Provide students the opportunity to get involved in research, in collaboration with research active psychology faculty, thereby learning first-hand about the scientific method.

The programme also includes specialised option[1]al modules which provide students the opportunity to concentrate on specific areas of study within the field of Psychology, including Forensic Psychology, Clinical Psychology and Neuropsychology. Furthermore, one of the most distinctive features of the programme is the Psychology Placement module that provides the opportunity to students to experience the application of psychology in a setting relevant to their degree.

BPS Accreditation

The British Psychological Society (BPS) visits courses every five years to review and determine the accreditation from the professional body. Our 2016 visit was particularly successful and secured the accreditation for the Psychology course for all our graduates completing the course with a second class degree or better. They commended the course on seven areas of provision. The first of which was that Psychology staff members provide a supportive and nurturing learning environment for students. Also, BPS commended that the programme incorporates a range of exciting research and placement opportunities for students, enabling them to experience a range of ‘real world’ psychological research and practice first-hand. They also noted that employability and psychological literacy are embedded thoroughly and effectively across the programme.

Therefore, UCLan Cyprus is the first University in Cyprus that provides an accredited Psychology course by BPS.
