Business Psychology

This programme offers students the opportunity to gain a fascinating look at the science of how people and groups behave at work. This course gives people with an appropriate background theoretical knowledge and practical skills used in organisational psychology. Students learn about training, organisational development, employee relations and motivation, design of environments/health and safety, human/machine interaction, counselling and personal development, performance appraisal and career development, and selection in organisations.

Entry requirements

If English is not your first language, you are required to take an English language test to prove your level of proficiency.

Assessment is by a combination of examinations, report, course work, practical assessment and presentations. A dissertation of around 15,000 words is normally undertaken.
