    Hi, I will be hopefully starting a psychology degree in Septemeber, and I was wondering, is it taught all by lectures? Or is there other stuff too?
    I just want to know, what sort of times and days are you in doing the degree and does it involve experiments or presentations etc...?

    Have you not researched teaching methods used on your course yet? Check the website/prospectus/subject guides etc and see. No two universities will be the same.

    hey! um... let's see... as someone else has sed, it does vary from uni to uni but generally speaking, yes there are mainly lectures and lab sessions which are designed for you to improve and practise ur experimental skills. Some unis have seminars and tutorials with their tutors... but that varies. Timetabling, i should think daily... but don't take my word for that! Lab sessions seem to be several hours long, but that could just be the places, i picked...

    Again, your course structure does vary but generally, a lot of your final marks is based on your final research project which you undertake in your third year. There will be core modules that you will have to take esp if your course is BPS- accredited. However, some unis allow optional modules on top of that and some allow you to pick modules from other depts.

    hope that helps!
