Advice for progression and other aspectsNatural Sciences advice
For a BPS accredited degree Introduction To Psychology 2: Developmental And Socialpsychology (PSYC1081) can only be taken if students have a grade B or better in A-level Biology (or an equivalent qualification).
Progression from: PSYC1081; PSYC1062.
For a BPS accredited degree, students must follow the Level 2 Joint Honours degree rules. The co-requisites of Level 2 modules means that students are only able to take Psychology at Level 2 if they take at least 60 credits. An added consequence is that in Year 2 students are unable to pick up more than 20 credits of Level 1 Psychology.
For a BPS accredited degree Psychology Project (PSYC3041) must be passed with a mark of at least 40%. First year students intending to take the Psychology Project should read the advice in the project module in Ultra.
