About

The Psychology of Education programme offered by the University of Bristol draws on a wide range of theories and methods from across the core areas of psychology and encourages you to interrogate their application to education and educational contexts.

Overview

You will benefit from our longstanding tradition of high-quality research and teaching in this area and will acquire unique skills in both psychology and research methods. You will learn how research can inform theory, policy and practice, and how to conduct your own piece of empirical research to answer appropriate research questions. You will also acquire a range of transferable skills, such as communication skills, numerical reasoning, computer literacy and teamwork.

The knowledge and skills obtained through the Psychology of Education programme offered by the University of Bristol are highly desired by employers and relevant to a wide range of careers in which an understanding of human behaviour or research methods is relevant. Successful students will be eligible to apply for Graduate Basis for Chartered Membership (GBC) with the BPS and for further professional training accredited by the BPS.

Some of our graduates have gone on to careers in educational psychology, clinical psychology, occupational psychology, counselling psychology, neuropsychology, research, community support (including mental health, school and youth work), or doctoral-level research.

Careers

We offer academic and personal development opportunities to equip you for the intellectual, social and personal challenges you will encounter during your career.

  • equipped to demonstrate impact, excellence and distinctiveness in your chosen field;
  • visionary, imaginative, innovative, reflective and creative;
  • high ideals and values, including a strong sense of social justice;
