Vismaya Kulkarni, who studies MSc Clinical Psychology and Mental Health explains:
“My favourite thing about my course is the way the modules are categorised, with whole modules dedicated to different disorders and therapies. I truly enjoy learning about all of them in the most detailed way possible. My course has pushed me to go beyond what I’ve learnt theoretically and apply the knowledge practically. It’s also helped me acquire and develop transferable skills like patience and consistency.”
There’s also the option to upgrade to degrees with a Year Abroad where you’ll spend your third year broadening your skills and experience at one of our partner universities in Australia, Canada, Germany, Hong Kong, Ireland, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Poland and the United States.
BSc Psychology student Kate Miller studied abroad in Texas:
“I really loved the city of Austin. There was so much to do and there was a fantastic happy vibe. The best thing about my experience of studying abroad was the feeling of being completely independent. There was something about being in a new place, miles away from your comfort zone that was extremely rewarding.”
