University of East London

Course Introduction

This is the only undergraduate Clinical and Community Psychology course in the UK to be accredited by the British Psychological Society (BPS). Studying a BPS accredited course will give you the opportunity to gain graduate or chartered membership of the Society.

Clinical and Community Psychology is all about learning from, and initiating positive change with, vulnerable and marginalised people and groups. The focus is not just on the individuals themselves, but on how factors in society have an impact on lives.

If you want to be out there in the real world, learning and researching and making a difference, this is the course for you.

You’ll practise what you are learning through partnerships or voluntary schemes within local community groups or the NHS.

You’ll widen your experience and learn new skills, such as evidence-based evaluations, report writing and making recommendations for practice.

In at least one of your modules you have the opportunity to undertake a professional piece of evidence-based research for a community partner – a service that the organisation would perhaps not otherwise have been able to afford.

Course Modules

Our programmes are distinctive in their applied approach to psychology and benefit from a strong professional emphasis. This approach, combined with a comprehensive skills curriculum, develops students' transferable skills and equips them with a competitive edge in the employment market. In addition to the core areas of your Clinical and Community psychology degree (e.g. mental health, clinical psychology, biological foundations, cognitive psychology, social psychology, developmental psychology and research methods), we offer one of the widest ranges of modules of any psychology departments in the UK to enable you to specialise.
