Why study psychology at AECC University College
Interested in psychology for the 21st century, understanding the impact of technology on human behaviour and social media on mental health, and strategies applied to cope with a range of psychological challenges and issues? Want to take advantage of our clinical insight within the healthcare and sports profession? Not many psychology courses can offer modern, student-centred study with practical, real-world experiences tailored to your area of interest. Through our clinical facilities you will gain a true insight into the world of applied psychology, an opportunity afforded to very few psychology students who study elsewhere. Our psychology courses here at AECC University College will give you a specialist, defined route into areas of psychology, whilst offering you practical experience in our on-site clinics.
Built on our successful reputation and experience in scientific and evidence-based approaches to practice, all of our psychology courses follow the requirements and standards of the British Psychological Society (BPS) which means when you graduate you will be work-ready.
You will be taught a core curriculum that covers biological psychology, cognitive psychology, developmental psychology, individual differences, social psychology, conceptual and historical issues, and research methods.
The nature of our psychology courses means that employment opportunities are incredibly diverse, all of which provide basis to continue your training to become a practising psychologist, or if you choose not to continue training you can still progress into a broad range of professions. There is also the opportunity for students who graduate from the BSc (Hons) Psychology and Counselling course to gain employment in a range of people-focused occupations.
Immerse yourself in our health science community and take advantage of our clinical facilities, staff expertise and partnerships, and then unwind down at our award-winning seven mile stretch of Bournemouth beach.
