The way we develop and learn as children underpins our entire lifespan. This degree will give you a sound understanding of Psychology in an educational context. You’ll explore learning, memory, thinking and language, as well as the problems encountered by young people in education - things like learning difficulties and social or emotional problems. In the first year you will study the core areas of cognitive, social, psychobiology and developmental psychology. In Years 2 and 3 you will study specific modules concerning the application of psychology in educational settings. You’ll graduate with the ability to enhance children's learning and enable teachers to become more aware of the social factors affecting teaching and learning.

For changes to 2017 UCAS tariff entry requirements please see our Essential and Important Course Information. UCLan requires all undergraduate applicants to have a minimum attainment of five GCSEs at grade C and above, or equivalent, (including Maths and English). In 2017 and beyond we will view the new Grade 4 as being equivalent to a C grade and will therefore require students to achieve GCSE Grade 4 or above. However, if the subject is relevant to our degree programme and requires a higher GCSE grade (e.g. GCSE B grade), and/or includes a Professional body that governs the entry requirements, Grade 5 or above may be required.
