Super interesting modules can be difficult at times but a really good range of exam style and coursework such as video essays and posters not just reports and essays.

Overall I'd say the course is good. There are some modules that I don't think are taught as efficiently as they could be. Most of the lecturers are really good and pretty nice but there are a few that can get a little unreasonable. There is so much self study compared to teaching time and you really have to be motivated to make it work. read more

Can’t really say much on the course because it’s all been online. The content is interesting and very thorough but I do think there have been times where needs of students have not been met. I however cannot fully form an opinion on this until I’ve had a full in person experience ! read more

Really interesting course and a lot of career support. The lecturers make psychology topics a lot more interesting than school teachers (and I had a really good psychology teacher at A-Level). Buy the sensation & perception book because that module is quite difficult. read more
