Our courses in psychology, criminology, forensic science, nutritional therapy, addiction, education studies and early years education will get your career off to a great start.
Not only do we offer single honours programmes, but some of our multidisciplinary course pathways give you access to the teaching and facilities of other departments across the University, which makes the whole experience an even richer one.
Many of our courses are accredited by professional bodies. Our forensic science courses are accredited by The Chartered Society of Forensic Sciences, our nutritional therapy courses are accredited by the Nutritional Therapy Education Commission and our psychology courses have been accredited by The British Psychological Society (BPS) since 1986. The courses in Addiction Studies are all mapped against the Drug and Occupational Standards and accredited with the Federation of Drug and Alcohol Professionals.
Our staff team are committed to delivering engaging and exciting learning, and the level of support you will receive is outstanding.
Our lecturers have experience of teaching in inner city schools, providing teacher training, delivering professional development for teachers and publishing research in internationally recognised journals.
The school teaching facilities are also equipped with modern technologies and instrumentation such as the eye-tracker, biopacs and other physiological equipment, and forensic investigation labs. We also have a range of equipment in our science labs which includes a Raman Spectrometer. This means we can give you a stimulating environment to develop the knowledge, skills and confidence you need for your academic and professional development.
We have good links and collaborations with local services and where our students on the addiction courses have the opportunity to apply the knowledge and skills acquired during the course. Several students who volunteered for drug and alcohol services have found employment soon after graduation.
