What is Clinical and Health Psychology BSc (Hons)?

Our Clinical and Health Psychology degree is accredited by the British Psychological Society, and so is your first step towards becoming a chartered psychologist working in areas such as Clinical and Health psychology.

Clinical Psychologists and Health Psychologists apply psychological knowledge and skills in clinical and community settings. They contribute to the prevention of illness and the promotion of health and wellbeing. They design and implement interventions to improve the mental and physical health outcomes as well as helping to shape the policies and systems which affect healthcare.

Within your degree you will explore a range of theory and knowledge to underpin your understanding of the role of psychology in physical and mental health settings. The course takes an applied perspective, allowing you to explore the role of psychological practitioners working in a range of healthcare settings and discover how psychology is applied to address a range of health and wellbeing challenges.

The course is taught via a mixture of interactive lectures and workshops. You will be taught by an enthusiastic team of clinicians and academics with diverse research and practice interests, including vaccine hesitancy, living well with long-term health conditions, nature and health, mindfulness-based approaches, anxiety, health-related stigma, and many more.

You will be assigned a personal tutor and a dissertation supervisor to support you in your studies.

Assessment has been designed to develop the knowledge and skills required of critically reflective and ethical scientist-practitioners working within evidence-based practice frameworks. A range of assessments will be used to support learning, including real world problems faced by professional psychologists. Tasks for assessment include reflective portfolios, case studies, essays, presentations, and intervention and evaluation design.

It’s planned that this course will be taught at UoG’s new campus in Gloucester city centre from September 2025.

The vibrant campus will be at the heart of the regeneration of Gloucester city centre. It will bring an iconic building back to life as a modern centre for teaching, learning and community partnerships, through placements, research and outreach activity, and provide cutting-edge facilities for your course.
