  • The opportunity to join, or get involved with the running of, the

    students. They organise events of both an academic and a social
    nature. In previous years the Society has organised a trip to the

    meal and golf and cinema trips

You will spend a significant proportion of the first two years
studying the key areas of psychology which include: biological
psychology, social psychology, cognitive psychology, developmental
psychology and individual differences.

You will be taught how to conduct psychological research, taking
these key areas into consideration at all times. In the first and
second year, you will learn about psychological research methods and
the statistical analyses that researchers in psychology use. In the
final year you will design and conduct your own research. You will
analyse and present your results in the form of an independent project
in the area of psychology.

You will also take a placement module with an external organisation
which will give you valuable experience, enable skill development and
enhance your employability.
