Are you an international student?
You should visit the International Students section on our website.
During your first year you will be introduced to the core areas of biological, cognitive, developmental, and social psychology. As well as theoretical principles, the modules cover the applied aspects of these subjects, for example in education, engineering and clinical settings. You will also learn statistical methods of analysis and how to plan, carry out and report on psychological or cognitive neuroscience experiments. To complement your studies you will have the flexibility to select up to two modules from other Schools.
Second year modules examine the same topics as your first year in greater depth. You will expand your understanding, deal with more advanced theoretical problems, continue training in relevant research methods, and be given greater independence in undertaking research. Practical sessions run in a series of five-week group projects and are accompanied by further statistics courses. Psychology and cognitive neuroscience students are also offered a series of extra lectures detailing contemporary neuroimaging techniques. You also have the opportunity of spending one or two semesters in your second year at our campus in the UK.The final year allows you to choose from a variety of advanced topics. If you are studying for the cognitive neuroscience degree you will take three core neuroscience modules plus another module of your choice. You are also required to conduct an independent research study during your final year. The project lasts throughout the year and, acting under the supervision of lecturers, you will be expected to take the initiative in designing and carrying out the research yourself, and completing a full research project report.
