In 2009, 2010, 2011 and 2012 Sunderland’s Psychology Department has been the highest rated in the North East of England for overall student satisfaction, according to the National Student Survey. With such a consistent record you can have great confidence in the quality of our course.
Psychology at Sunderland was ranked in the top five in the UK for assessment and feedback, and personal development (self-confidence, communication skills, and problem solving), by the National Student Survey 2012. We were also sixth for academic support and eighth for teaching quality.
Our course is accredited by The British Psychological Society and, if you achieve at least a second class honours degree, you will have graduate basis for chartered membership. With further work this can lead to chartered psychologist status, which is the benchmark of professional recognition.
Another benefit of Sunderland’s course is the ability to choose modules in your final year that suit your particular interests. Options include occupational psychology, mental health and illness and clinical neuropsychology.
With all this, it’s no surprise that 95% of psychology students are satisfied with the overall quality of the course at Sunderland, according to the National Student Survey 2012. We invite you to apply to join us.
