Psychology, BSc Hons

Don't get me wrong, I loved my time at Durham. However, the course was pretty poor. No seminars, 100% lectures. Unhelpful tutors, no personal tutor in department, only in college and they had no background in Psychology. Feedback on summatives and formatives was poor across the board. Lecturers are researchers primarily which is great because they know their stuff but it also means they travel a lot and miss lectures. Can feel like poor value for money and that you are only their secondary interest. I totally understand you cannot be babied, but I at least hope to be treated like a customer to some extent, parting with a huge amount of money to be taught interesting and useful information and assisted with content when teaching myself from books. Essentially, I felt pretty cheated. I really enjoyed my elective modules, their content was really interesting (I chose cybercrime, English and education across the course) and it was nice to see how other departments worked (seminars!)

Psychology, BSc Hons

I like the course structure - a large variety of topics are covered, allowing you to find what interests you the most. The lecturers are mostly great and always knowledgeable about their subject. What I love most is the level of engagement with current research. The tutors discuss their own research and there are opportunities for students to get involved as well and assist in research projects. I believe the department genuinely cares about the students, the only occasional problems are with communication. For example, the department hosts psychology-related talks every week, which would be interesting to many students, but those are rarely advertised to undergraduates. I went my whole first year without knowing about many interesting opportunities.

Quirky lecturers, course mates with diverse characters, cardiac hill, a sandwich van, 3 hours practical classes, all good memories. One of the memorable incidents happened during a revision class in the 2nd year. Students were waiting for a lecturer to come, and he came in 40 minutes late. By that time, about the half of the students had left the lecture theatre as they wanted to do revision for the exam. The lecturer wondered in, saying nothing, but wrote on the blackboard "infantile death", then left.

There is a very ineteresting, broad content and a wide range of modules and assignments so everyone will find something for themsleves, however it is not as chalenging as I expected and there aren't enough opportunities to get involved with the department and not enough discussions, which I find to be most enriching.
