Small and friendly department with a research-active academic team. Fully supportive of student research interests. Accredited by the British Psychological Society (BPS) – students will also have the opportunity to attend and present at the BPS conference at level 6. Facilities used on the course include a psychometric lab, teaching laboratories with modern computing facilities, a high tech sports performance lab, experimental cubicles and a simulation lab. Practical sessions in each module to give hands on experience of the applicability of theory and/or develop students research skills.We believe that as psychology is about real life, formal lectures should be enhanced by experiential learning. All set lectures in the morning are supplemented by a practical exercise in the afternoon. These practicals relate directly to the theory studied in the morning session and use the excellent and varied resources available at the university.
