Psychology courses are available at both our Parkgate Road Campus, Chester, and University Centre Shrewsbury. In Chester, the Department of Psychology is based in the Chritchley and Best Buildings, and offers exclusive use of eight experimental rooms. In Shrewsbury, Psychology is based in the modern Guildhall building on the banks of the river. In both locations, students benefit from modern teaching facilities alongside social hubs and accommodation just a short walk from the centre of either Chester or Shrewsbury.

Careers / Employment

All of our Psychology courses have the option to undertake a Work Based Learning module to ensure experience of applying your skills in real employment environments. A Psychology degree from Chester will equip you with a broad range of employability skills, including literacy, numeracy, critical appraisal, data handling, communication, and logical problem-solving skills. At Shrewsbury, you will have the opportunity to complete a community-based project, and by working with local organisations you will get first-hand experience of Psychology in practice.
