Rhagarweiniad i’r Cwrs

This is a ‘pure psychology’ course and will allow you to gain a scientific understanding of the basic processes by which we learn, think, feel and adapt to our social conditions. The course covers both normal and abnormal behavior from infancy to old age, and deals with the biological, social and individual factors that affect human psychology.

This course offers you the widest possible choice of modules, which enables you to tailor your study as your interests develop. This course is accredited by the British Psychological Society (BPS) and provides eligible graduates with Graduate Basis for Chartered Membership (GBC).

The Psychology with Foundation Year programme combines a foundation year with the three year Honours Degree to create an integrated four year programme. The programme provides an excellent introduction to studying a science subject at university and will provide you with the knowledge, skills and confidence required to study at degree-level.

The with Foundation Year programme is ideal for applicants who do not quite meet the entry requirements for the three year degree or who would benefit from further a further year’s study in relation to studying a science subject. Successful completion of the Foundation Year will see you progress to Year 1 of the Psychology programme.

As a Bangor University student, you will be taught by committed and enthusiastic staff and will have access to the University’s extensive student support network and facilities.

Gyrfaoedd a Chyflogadwyedd

As a graduate with a good degree in psychology from Bangor, a variety of careers will be open to you. There are careers for which a psychology degree is essential, and careers for which psychology provides a useful base. The BSc Psychology is the broadest degree option we offer so is suitable for students who want to follow any of the main psychological professions (clinical psychology, educational psychology, counselling psychology, health psychology, cognitive neuroscience, developmental psychology, applied behaviour analysis, etc). In addition, there are careers open to graduates and postgraduates from any discipline. These include, for example, careers in management training, accountancy, teaching, nursing, social work, the police and the armed forces.  Employers are usually looking for general or transferable skills, and a psychology degree arguably provides a unique combination of these.

Employability is a key theme of the Psychology programme you will follow in Bangor and we have embedded a large number of opportunities within our degree to give graduates as strong a CV as possible and equip them with a host of transferable skills that are relevant to both psychology and non-psychology related careers.

The simple fact that you will graduate from an internationally renowned, research intensive Psychology School adds additional value to your degree and improves your employability. This is well illustrated by our top 20% ranking for Graduate Prospects in the The Guardian Good University Guide 2019.

Costau’r Cwrs

Depending on the Psychology course you are studying, you may have the following costs:

Mandatory costs:

Almost all psychology assignments are submitted electronically, including the dissertation. There are a few exceptions which require printing by students for Year 1 and Year 2 modules (these may be draft assignments used in class, or leaflets and posters which need to be printed in colour). If students print from University computers, then printing costs across Year 1 and 2 would be approximately £5.

Additional costs may also be charged as follows: Enhanced DBS check (approx. £65).

Psychology provides a set number of core textbooks in the library, but students will incur costs if they choose to purchase their own texts.

Necessarily Incurred Costs:

BSc/MSci/intercalated students will choose from a range of Year 3 modules and intercalated and final year MSci students will choose from a range of Year 4 modules. Dependent on modules chosen, students may incur costs associated with printing (e.g. posters for display at modular conferences; portfolio to document experience working in schools).

In addition, some optional modules have costs associated with practical activities (e.g. Year 3 Born To Run module will require students to pay race entry fees (approximately £30-£40), travel and accommodation to races, and the purchase of running kit if not already owned; Year 3 Disorders of Literacy module may incur travel costs).

In some cases, students may be required to travel to collect data for their BSc/MSci dissertation. Students can pay to become a member of the British Psychological Society (approximately £30), but this is not essential for the course.

Students may also choose to purchase software such as SPSS, but this is available on the Wheldon Building’s computers.

Optional Costs:

We offer a wide range of additional student experiences to provide a full programme of potential activities. Many of these activities do not incur a cost to the student, including all Welcome Week activities run by Psychology (not including personal costs of drinks, food, etc. at the events) and Psychology's graduation receptions (food and drink are included).

Some optional activities do incur a cost and these range from international trips costing £500-£1,000, to national conferences costing approximately £25 + travel/accommodation expenses. However, all of these activities are entirely optional and extra-curricular.

Notes:

The above examples are not exhaustive and depend on your choice of course and modules. There may be additional course-specific costs if you are a joint-honours student, a combined-honours student, a non-graduating student, or a minor student, as you will also take modules from other Schools.
