  • About the Programme

    The Bachelor of Science (Honours) in Psychology (Clinical Psychology) (Top-up) programme is a Direct Honours Degree programme offered by the Faculty of Arts, Design and Social Sciences, Northumbria University, United Kingdom.

    Clinical Psychology involves understanding different aspects of physical and mental health problems and their impact on one’s well-being. These range from schizophrenia and depression to learning difficulties and addiction. This programme enables students to learn about a variety of physical and mental health issues, methods of assessment of those issues, and treatment and therapy options. For example, there are modules looking at what can cause physical and mental health problems (eg. eating disorders and alcoholism). Therefore, this specialised programme aims to provide students with a broad knowledge of Clinical Psychology.

    The practical research aspect runs throughout the programme and allows students to develop increasingly autonomous research skills as they progress over the two years. In the theory-based modules at level 5, students will mainly learn about research (research-led learning). Whereas, in the lab-based modules, students will progressively learn how to research (research-orientated learning) and conduct their own research (research-based learning). Discussing research (research-tutored learning) is an important approach in all modules. The final year project will be a culmination of their research training as they will work with a supervisor but take the lead in initiating, designing, conducting and reporting an original piece of empirical work.
