Accredited by the British Psychological Society (BPS), take one step closer to becoming a chartered psychologist and using psychology in your career.


Level 6 Bachelor of Science (BSc)
Awarded by University of Derby


Accredited by the British Psychological Society (BPS), this established Psychology BSc (Hons) online degree has been running successfully for over 8 years and remains one of our most popular courses.

This BPS accredited degree is an essential first step to becoming a qualified psychologist, but even if becoming a psychologist isn’t your career goal, psychology is still a fascinating subject to study and can also be used in many different disciplines of work.

Follow your own interests

As well as completing compulsory core areas of Psychology, you can choose from a range of optional modules which complement your personal or professional interest – e.g.Addictive Behaviours, Applied Psychology and Ergonomics or Autism, Asperger’s and ADHD.

Accredited and non-accredited routes

If you are looking to achieve Graduate Basis for Chartership (GBC) with the BPS you must also attend a one week residential held at the University of Derby’s Kedleston Road campus. The residential week provides you with the opportunity to experience different aspects of psychology, such as experimental design, running practical exercises in labs, group data collection and statistics alongside psychologists and academics who are experts in their field of study.

If you don’t need GBC or are unable to attend the residential week, you can take an alternative online module instead and graduate with a non-accredited BSc (Hons) Psychological Studies.

Free student membership of the British Psychological Society

To celebrate delivering online psychology degrees for ten years, we've introduced free student membership with the British Psychological Society (BPS). All students studying on one of our core Psychology programmes will receive full BPS student membership for the duration of their studies.

Interactive and practical learning

This online learning degree is specifically designed by our expert online tutors and contains plenty of opportunities to interact with tutors and other students through online discussion forums, virtual class room sessions and more traditional forms of communication such as email and Skype.

Supported learning

In addition to our academic teams, you’ll be appointed a dedicated online learner advisor who will support you on any non-academic issues throughout your course.

You’ll also benefit from many other university support services such as student wellbeing, eLibrary and resource centre, IT support and careers and employment service.
