This course is the only one of its type currently on offer in the United Kingdom. It is recognised by the British Psychological Society (BPS) as the basis for graduate membership of the society. Eligibility for BPS membership is the first step to a psychology-oriented career while Interdisciplinary study is a foundation for a wide variety of employment.

I went on a placement in a community mental health team and it was one of the most valuable learning techniques this course offers. To see how the ‘real world’ works and deals with the things you’re learning about in university is so helpful for putting things into context.
