The BSc Applied Psychology (Clinical) has been
developed in line with The Future of
Undergraduate Psychology in the United Kingdom, a
joint paper between the BPS, the Higher Education
Academy, Psychology Network and the Associated
Heads of Psychology Departments aimed at
considering how to provide students with an
undergraduate learning experience that will
enable them to apply their psychological literacy
throughout their lives. The programme has been
designed to improve employability following
graduation, whether they decide to go into a
clinical psychology role or move into a different
career and reduce stigma of mental health
sufferers through increased public
