Why study Psychology? Why study Psychology?

At UEA we offer a range of psychology programmes catering for students with broad or specific interests within the field of psychology – and all with the option of a year abroad or placement year.

We also offer flexibility, with the possibility of switching to a specific psychology pathway from the main Psychology programme (or vice versa) as the degree unfolds.

All of our programmes are accredited by the British Psychological Society (BPS) for Graduate Basis for Chartered Membership.

Choosing psychology at UEA offers a high staff-student ratio, with small-group seminars in addition to lectures, and a range of additional activities with an employability focus. These include paid internships and placement opportunities for our second year students, and a ‘Dragons' Den' residential course focusing on packaging psychological skills in a business context.
