Why study Psychology? There are many reasons why you should consider undertaking a psychology degree at USW.
All of our undergraduate Psychology degrees at the University of South Wales are accredited by the British Psychological Society. You’ll also be offered clinical experience on campus and have access to a range of exciting opportunities as part of our Psychology Plus scheme.
Our academic staff are involved in research, so you’ll be taught by staff at the forefront of their specialist fields. Tutors specialise in a range of fields, including developmental disorders across the lifespan, health behaviour, addictions research and sport psychology.
We have purpose-built psychology laboratories where you can develop your practical psychology skills. A range of tools are available, including eye-tracking equipment and electroencephalography (EEG) machines. There are also interview and observation rooms that you can use to conduct experiments and tests.
Attending an open day, whether online or on-campus, is the ideal way to learn more about our Psychology courses, discover what you can do with a Psychology degree and get a feel of what it's like to study at the University of South Wales.
Speak to the lecturers and expert staff who teach the courses, take tours of our campuses and facilities, view accommodation, speak to our advice team about placement and career opportunities and discuss finances. Plus, speak to current students and hear about their experiences first hand.
