Reading Vs Newcastle Vs LoughbroughWatch
Newcastle doesn't have a balanced psychology department. There are a few people in the psychology department, but its very small, and mostly people from the neuroscience institute teach the course. Consequentially, if you look at the course structure, its highly weighted towards biological modules. This is good if your into that area of study --- however, if you wanted to do a third year dissertation in social psychology or developmental, it wouldn't be ideal.
Thanks! I am more interested in the social and developement side so maybe not newcastle. Do you know much about Reading, Loughbrough or UEA's way of teaching?
If you look at the module structure and "research area" parts of the psychology websites it will tell you more about that. The biggest difference between unis will be in the third year of university - this is when all the basics have been covered for BPS acreditation and they base modules on the expertise of the people they have to lead those courses. Loughbrough is big on sport generally so would be good for sport psychology. Not all unis offer clinical psychology modules either, if that's what your into!
