The standard timetable involves around 10-12 hours of scheduled lectures and practical classes weekly, but there will be additional module-related seminars and personal tutorials scheduled throughout each semester and independent study is an integral component for each module.
You will learn through a wide variety of interactive and innovative teaching and learning methods, including lectures, personal tutorials, academic seminars, workshops, social media groups, and practical research classes.
During your third year, you will work collaboratively with psychology staff on an independent research project. Some of our students even go on to publish their independent research projects in academic peer-reviewed journals and present their findings at national and international research conferences.
Teaching block one (TB1) runs from September until January and during this block, for this year, this course will be taught in a ‘blended’ way. This means that some teaching will be done online and some will be on campus. The online teaching, where you will be physically apart from your lecturer, can be ‘live’ with your lecturer present and where you’ll be able to interact. Some of it may be self-directed which means that you can access the learning materials at a time to suit you.
Your face-to-face, on campus sessions will be a mixture of:
- Study groups
- Module tutorials
- Academic mentoring
- Academic success programme
- Employability workshops
Your online learning and teaching may include:
- Hot topic debates and discussions
- Revision sessions
- Q&A time
- On-demand e-lectures
- Self-paced module content
This course offers some modules taught through the medium of
