Psychology BSc (Hons)

Psychology is something I’ve always been interested in. The Forensic department here is one of the best in the country and when I came to the open Day I just fell in love with it. I didn’t realise how good a network this university has. It’s not just the degree or the qualification, it’s the people you meet and the network that you build up so your professional career already has a bonus from doing the course here.
