If you’re fascinated by the way people act, react and interact, Psychology sheds light on it all – giving you the chance to explore the mechanics of the human condition.

Why study with us

  • Our Psychology degrees are accredited courses with the British Psychological Society and can offer Graduate Basis for Chartered Membership (GBC).
  • Psychology at Burnley had 100% overall satisfaction in the 2021 National Student Survey (NSS).  It also received 100% for organisation and management!
  • At our Burnley Campus you’ll really get to know the other students on your course due to the smaller class sizes. You’ll also be able to get all the support you need from your tutors.

What you'll do

  • In your second year, you can focus on two specialist areas of the subject – most of which mirror professional chartered routes, like Forensic Psychology and Clinical Psychology.
  • You can choose to take a sandwich year – studying at one of our partner universities abroad or working on a placement to help you develop workplace skills and experience.
  • Study this course at our impressive Burnley Campus in Pennine Lancashire, where you’ll benefit from smaller class sizes, lots of support, and a friendly, close-knit learning environment.

Module overview

Course delivery

Following the pandemic, we have found that some courses benefit from a blended learning and teaching approach. Therefore, the majority of your teaching will be face-to-face on campus aside from a small amount of online teaching where we have learnt it works best.


Every effort has been made to ensure the accuracy of our published course information. However, our programmes are subject to ongoing review and development. Changing circumstances may cause alteration to, or the cancellation of, courses. Changes may be necessary to comply with the requirements of accrediting bodies or revisions to subject benchmarks statements. As well as to keep courses updated and contemporary, or as a result of student feedback. We reserve the right to make variations if we consider such action to be necessary or in the best interests of students.
