Course Summary

Take the next step on your journey in psychology with this British Psychological Society (BPS) accredited course for Health Psychology.

Why do people not eat healthily? Can we understand, predict and change health behaviours by looking at psychological factors? How do people adjust to getting a diagnosis for a chronic condition? Why do some people do better after surgery than others? These are the types of questions you'll investigate while studying Health Psychology.

At Nottingham you'll learn with a real focus on professional skills, helping you to get to where you want to be by the end of the course. The passion and enthusiasm of the course team was just one of the seven commendations we received as part of our accreditation along with student support and the professional skills and career development opportunities we give our students. Join our Health Psychology family and make the most of our friendly and supportive but academically challenging course.


This module develops an appreciation of key issues in the interaction between patients and health care contexts. These include: communication in health care settings; the impact of hospitalisation on adults / children; preparation for stressful medical/ dental procedures; giving bad news; adherence to medical treatment.
