Childhood and Youth Studies with Psychology, BA Hons FullTime

I actually did childhood and youth studies with criminology - this wasn’t an option here to select. I adore the course, although, I’ve never seen nor been contacted by my personal tutor. read more

The course is a sham, no accreditation from either the psychology side and no prospects going forward with working with children without further completing a masters. read more

Disappointed

Childhood and Youth Studies with Psychology, BA Hons FullTime

For someone wanting to go into counselling/clinical psychology field, there is no option to do a dissertation in psychology, it has to be in education as a major, which makes no sense as you will neither be qualified as teacher status nor will you be able to get on the bps accredited degree. However, Southampton University does the same course and there is a choice for this to happen and you do get teacher status or accredited BPS - I have no idea why Portsmouth University does not follow this same structure, the lectures for Childhood and Youth are mundane and could be read from home, on Moodle! There should be more options with psychology, for those that do not want to go into teaching! One final point, attendance and going to allocated lectures/seminars is a major priority for the course leaders, and admin, which is a waste of our time and money, at this level, if students make a decision to either jump in on a lecture/seminar not on their allocated timetable - so what? read more
