PSYC0038 - Introduction to Social and Business Psychology (15 credits / 7.5 ECTS)

PSYC0039 - Introduction to Psychology (15 credits / 7.5 ECTS)

These are introductory modules without pre-requisites, open to students from any department and in any year group. Students wishing to take these modules should register for them on Portico. Places are given on a first come, first served basis. If a module is full when you register, you will be informed via email that you have not been given a place.

ALL OTHER 1st AND 2nd YEAR BSC PSYCHOLOGY MODULES cannot be taken as general electives (unless you are a student on a programme with a shared teaching agreement, see below.)

SOME THIRD YEAR LEVEL BSc Psychology modules may be taken by students on other programmes as well, but STRICTLY ONLY BY STUDENTS IN THEIR THIRD YEAR OR ABOVE. Note that 3rd year modules are only suitable for students with some background in Psychology (e.g., A level or an introductory module), because elective students are evaluated against the same criteria as 3rd year BSc Psychology students. Please carefully read the guidance via the link relevant to your programme below.
