Follow your own interests
During the final stage of this online course, in addition to the compulsory core areas of Psychology you can also choose from a range of optional modules, allowing you to follow your own interests. These may be in areas such as Addictive Behaviours, Applied Psychology and Ergonomics or Autism, Asperger's and ADHD.
With a choice of start dates – September, January or May – and interactive online learning materials, you have the flexibility to study at the most convenient time and place for you. Course modules still operate within a fixed trimester but you can choose to study during the day, in the evenings or at the weekend rather than having to attend fixed lectures.
Free student membership of the British Psychological Society (BPS)
To show our commitment to our students, we are always looking for new ways to facilitate your growth as psychologists. Enrol onto this course and receive full BPS student membership for the duration of your studies.
Accredited and non-accredited routes
Learning online provides plenty of opportunities to interact with our expert online tutors and your fellow students.
As an online student hoping to gain eligibility for Graduate Basis for Chartership (GBC) with the BPS you must 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 hands-on practical experiments, group data collection and statistics.
If you are unable to attend the residential week, or you don't need GBC you can take an alternative module instead and graduate with a non-accredited BSc (Hons) Psychological Studies.

Michael Donohoe, MBA
I chose to study online because of the flexibility. The ability to work out of hours and over weekends meant that the impact at work and home was kept to a bare minimum. I would not have been able to study any other way.
I feel that my personal approach in business is much more 'holistic' as a result of my studies at the University of Derby Online Learning. I feel much more confident as a person; it’s a great feeling.
