“We offer a unique opportunity to pursue a BA(Hons) in Psychology under the American liberal arts model, accredited by the British Psychological Society and Chartered by Psi Chi. Our programme supports the development of employability skills by offering a high calibre internship option for students to gain work or research experience outside the institution. We are delighted to be the only Psi Chi Chapter in the UK and the recipients of a Chapter Activity Grant for the student-led project on University-Wide Culture of Wellbeing. We are proud of our students and Faculty who are working with Psi Chi’s Network for International Collaborative Exchange (NICE) contributing to mental health data collected across many countries at a critical time for public health. ”

What our students say about BA (Hons) Psychology

“Studying Psychology at Richmond has given me a massive amount of knowledge in not just Psychology, but in statistics and research methods. The rich liberal arts curriculum which Richmond provides, paired with my major classes, mutually benefit each other in allowing me to approach topics and challenges from a variety of different angles”.

“I’m a Psychology major and I’m currently in my last semester.

During my internship I was a research assistant helping with the Social Relationships Study at SGDP (Social, Genetic and Developmental Psychiatry Centre) in the KCL Denmark Hill campus. The study looks at the gender differences in Autism Spectrum Disorder in adults.

My responsibilities included recruiting the participants, managing data entry, mail merges, and online questionnaires sent to the participants and their parents. I also conducted visits in the participants’ houses and administered a battery of tasks, including IQ, memory, and theory of mind tests. During the visits I also shadowed autism assessments. Back in the office I transcribed and scored the tasks and entered the data in SPSS.

Interacting with the participants has definitely been my favourite aspect of the placement. I really enjoyed getting to know the participants and learning more about ASD. The internship has also benefitted me as now I know what the job of a research assistant looks like and learned how to perform the tasks associated with this position. I also developed a greater sense of professionalism and I’m more confident about my future transition from the classroom into the workplace. In addition, the placement has shaped my future career choices as I am now considering pursuing a career in research.

Overall it was a very good experience and I would recommend every student at Richmond to do an internship if they have an opportunity to do so.”
