The BSc (Hons) Applied Psychology programme is an excellent choice for those who wish to pursue a career in Psychology. During the course, students come into contact with contemporary research regarding the social, developmental, cognitive and biological dimensions of human behaviour. They also explore the psychological applications in a wide range of areas – from understanding the nature and causes of mental illness, to investigating the decision-making process in real-life conditions.
The programme is designed by the University of Derby, according to the criteria of the British Psychological Society BPS (British Psychological Society), by which academic Psychology programmes are certified. In addition, the programme has been designed based on the British Psychological Society (BPS) requirements for Graduate Basis for Chartered Membership (GBC). However the programme itself is not accredited. Graduates who wish to have the GBC will need to individually apply for membership to the Society, who will evaluate if the requirements are met. Many of our graduates have successfully applied to the Society and been granted the GBC. Therefore, this course is an excellent training ground for future professional consolidation of graduates, which is ensured by postgraduate studies and clinical experience.
The programme mainly consists of 20-credit modules. Thera are also two 0-credit modules focusing on Academic & Employability Development and a 3rd year dissertation (Applied Psychology Research Project), which equals to 40 credits.
The modules are carried out in semesters, while teaching and learning takes place in various ways: lectures, guest lectures, seminars, labs, tutorials, clinics, role-plays, presentations, supervision, independent learning. First year modules and 50% of the 2nd year modules are taught & assessed in Greek, while the remaining modules are taught & assessed in English. (Note: This programme is also delivered entirely in English).
