Rhagarweiniad i’r Cwrs

On this course, as well as studying general psychology modules, you will specialise in understanding the psychological factors behind why people may commit criminal or deviant behaviour. You will use critical skills and evidence, based on research, to explore how forensic psychologists may contribute to debates on policing, crime, the criminal justice system and rehabilitation. Some examples of the factors that you may explore are; substance abuse, mental health disorders, as well as exploring the incidence of offending behaviours in different populations, e.g., children and youth. As well as understanding some of the reasons why people may commit offending behaviours, you will also explore the ways in which forensic psychologists can work to treat and rehabilitate offenders.

The first year of the course is designed to provide a broad introduction to the study of psychology. It is designed to provide a thorough grounding in the subject for those with no Psychology background while allowing those who have already studied Psychology to increase the breadth and depth of their understanding. The second year continues on the same basis enabling graduates to cover all the core topics be eligible for the BPS Graduate Basis for Chartered Membership. In Year three, you complete a major research and an in-depth study of at least four topics selected from the full range of modules that are currently available, at least two of which specialise in forensic psychology.

Gyrfaoedd a Chyflogadwyedd

BSc Psychology with Forensic Psychology focuses in that area but is still suitable for students who want to follow any of the main psychological professions (clinical psychology, educational psychology, counselling psychology, health psychology 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. Further, employers are usually looking for general or transferable skills, and a psychology degree arguably provides a unique combination of these as it is both a literate and numerate discipline. The fact that we are regularly ranked in the Top 20 for graduate prospects shows how employable you will be as one of our graduates.

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

Ffioedd dysgu ar gyfer Myfyrwyr DU/UE (2019–20 a 2020–21)
  • Llawn amser: £9,000 y flwyddyn
  • Rhan amser: £750 wrth 10 credyd

Ffioedd dysgu ar gyfer Myfyrwyr Rhyngwladol

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.

Sut i wneud cais drwy UCAS

UCAS yw’r Gwasanaeth Derbyniadau i Brifysgolion a Cholegau

Mae pob cais i’r brifysgol yn cael ei brosesu drwy UCAS ac yna’n cael ei drosglwyddo i’r prifysgolion a restrwyd.

Gall myfyrwyr wneud cais am hyd at bum cwrs.

Ar gyfer Meddygaeth, Deintyddiaeth a chyrsiau Milfeddygol dim ond pedwar cwrs caiff myfyrwyr restru.

Mae’r ffurflen gais i’w chael ar wefan UCAS, o dan ‘Apply’. Y dyddiad cau ar gyfer Prifysgolion Rhydychen a Chaergrawnt a chyrsiau Meddygaeth, Deintyddiaeth a Milfeddygaeth ydy 15 Hydref.

Ar gyfer pob cwrs arall y dyddiad cau ydy 15 Ionawr.

Datganiad Personol

Y Datganiad Personol yw’r rhan o’r ffurflen gais sy’n gofyn am fwyaf o waith.

Cewch ddefnyddio dim ond 47 o linellau neu 500–550 o eiriau i egluro pam yr ydych am astudio’r cwrs, a’r sgiliau sydd gennych sy’n hanfodol ar gyfer astudio yn y brifysgol.

I ysgrifennu datganiad personol llwyddiannus mae’n rhaid i chi fod â dealltwriaeth dda am y cwrs a’i gynnwys. Cofiwch mai dim ond un datganiad personol rydych yn ei hysgrifennu ar gyfer eich pum dewis.

Gwnewch yn siwr bod y cyrsiau yn debyg, os nad yw yr un fath, a gwnewch yn siŵr nad ydych yn sôn am gwrs neu brifysgol penodol.

Darllenwch ein cyngor ar ysgrifennu datganiad personol llwyddianus neu gwyliwch ein fideos.

Ar ôl gwneud cais

Gallwch gadw llygaid ar eich cais drwy system UCAS ‘Track’. Bydd cynigion gan brifysgolion yn ymddangos ar Track a gallwch dderbyn neu wrthod cynnig.

Rhaid i chi fod wedi derbyn atebion gan bob prifysgol cyn y gallwch ymateb. Mae dau fath o ymateb – derbyn pendant (firm acceptance) a derbyn wrth gefn (insurance acceptance). Fel arfer mae myfyrwyr yn ymateb ar ddechrau mis Mai.

Ansicr am eich camau nesaf?
