BSc Educational Psychology / Application and selection

Year of entry: 2024

How to apply

Apply through UCAS

Interview requirements

Interviews are not conducted as part of the recruitment process for this course. However, tutors reserve the right to request an interview.

Disclosure and Barring Service check

As work placements are a mandatory element of the course, you will be required to complete a DBS check upon entry.


Applications for deferred entry are considered equally to other applications up to the point of confirmation. Deferred entry is granted on the discretion of admissions staff, and is normally granted for one year only.

Policy for applicants who resit their qualifications

We will consider applicants who have re-sat individual modules.

If you have re-sat your final examinations, we will consider your application but may require further information in order to make an informed academic judgement on your application.


If you applied in the previous year and your application was not successful you may apply again. Your application will be considered against the standard course entry criteria for that year of entry. 

In your new application, you should demonstrate how your application has improved. We may draw upon all information from your previous applications or any previous registrations at the University as a student when assessing your suitability for your chosen course.

If you are applying for a place for the same year of entry through UCAS Extra, you should provide additional evidence of your suitability for the course.

If you are applying through clearing, you are required to meet the clearing requirements. In both UCAS Extra and clearing the places will be subject to availability.


Students wishing to transfer from other universities will be considered on merit, providing we have enough places to accommodate them. 

However, transfers from courses not accredited by the BPS are unlikely to be granted, given the requirements for external accreditation.
