University of East London

Course Introduction

This extended course is perfect if you want a degree in Psychology, but you don’t meet the standard entry requirements. First we prepare you for your degree during the Foundation year, bringing you up to speed with academic skills and a firm grounding in the subject - then you can go on to do the full undergraduate degree.

Your degree in Child Psychology will develop your knowledge and understanding of children from a psychological, cultural, educational and counselling perspective. You’ll be focusing on why babies, children and adolescents behave the way they do. You’ll also design and carry out studies to explore the factors that go on to influence adult behaviour. The aim is to learn how psychologists can use their knowledge to understand individuals and help them to make a positive difference to their life’s development.

You’ll be studying in one of the largest – and friendliest – Schools of Psychology in the country, with a huge range of expertise available to you on the campus across a range of subjects.
