    The Psychology courses at Brunel emphasise the every day and real-life significance of psychology by encouraging you to explore the relationship between the practical and theoretical aspects of the subject, both through academic study and work placements.
    Psychology is often defined as the study of behaviour and of the mind. Through their theories and research, psychologists investigate a diverse range of topics including:

    • The relationship between the brain, behaviour and subjective experience;

    • Human development;

    • The influence of other people on the individual’s thoughts, feelings and behaviour;

    • Psychological disorders and their treatment;

    • The impact of culture on the individual’s behaviour and subjective experience;

    • Differences between people in terms of their personality and intelligence;

    • People’s ability to acquire, organise, remember and use knowledge to guide their behaviour.

    The courses in Psychology, Psychology and Sociology, and Psychology and Anthropology are approved degree courses for the purpose of giving the graduate basis for registration by the British Psychological Society, provided the minimum standard of qualification of second class honours is achieved.


    This degree ensures that you gain an understanding of the breadth and diversity of the discipline. At the same time, as you progress through the course and discover the areas which interest you the most, it becomes increasingly possible to specialise, through both our work placement system and your selection of modules.

    UK requirements for international applications

    Universities in the United Kingdom use a centralized system of undergraduate application: University and College Admissions Service (UCAS). It is used by both domestic and international students. Students have to register on the UCAS website before applying to the university. They will find all the necessary information about the application process on this website. Some graduate courses also require registration on this website, but in most cases students have to apply directly to the university. Some universities also accept undergraduate application through Common App (the information about it could be found on universities' websites).

    Both undergraduate and graduate students may receive three types of responses from the university. The first one, “unconditional offer” means that you already reached all requirements and may be admitted to the university. The second one, “conditional offer” makes your admission possible if you fulfill some criteria – for example, have good grades on final exams. The third one, “unsuccessful application” means that you, unfortunately, could not be admitted to the university of you choice.

    All universities require personal statement, which should include the reasons to study in the UK and the information about personal and professional goals of the student and a transcript, which includes grades received in high school or in the previous university.
