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.
We are proud to provide an outstanding educational experience, using the most effective learning and teaching approaches, carefully tailored to suit the specific needs of your course. Apart from a small number of online-only courses, most of our courses consist of in-person, on-campus teaching, enabling full engagement with your lecturers and fellow students.
Practical skills sessions, lab work seminars, and workshops predominantly take place in person, allowing for group working and demonstrations. We also operate virtual labs and Simulated Learning Environments which will facilitate greater access to training opportunities in the future.
Online learning may take place ‘live’ using software such as Zoom, allowing you to interact with the lecturer and other students and to ask questions. Lecture recordings also allow for more flexibility to revisit material, to revise for assessments and to enhance learning outside of the classroom.
This course offers some modules taught through the medium of
Welsh or bilingually for students who consider themselves to be
fluent Welsh speakers. For more details on the provision available
