    Do you have ethical approval?
    Well, is it necessary? I didn't know about that as yet, if it is necessary I can get it, although I've never heard about that.
    I can ask my professor.
    If it'll be okay what? Can you work with me on this research?

    It is absolutely necessary to obtain ethical approval from your institution before you start collecting data; otherwise it is misconduct.

    I study at York St John University. I declined my offer from University of York for it, which some people will think I'm mental. YSJ just seemed more friendly, welcoming and staff seemed a lot more down to earth etc. and I don't regret my decision at all. I'd recommend YSJ to anyone, it's such a dedicated and determined university.

    1st year was generally quite easy, I'd compare it to AS levels really. There's a lot of new things to get your head round like referencing, academic writing and essays; but it's a gradual process and fairly easy to settle into.

    In terms of ethics I think as long as it's justified, then a few unethical bits in research is ok. Like if deception was necessary to get realistic, unbiased responses from participants, I'd say that's okay as long as they're fully debriefed at the end. Nothing like Milgram though!

    My favourite module, hmm, it feels sad to say but I really enjoyed statistics so I'd probably say that. Then my second would probably be cognitive psychology, although I am looking forward to studying animal psychology next semester!

    Hmm, that even the tiniest components of the brain can control so many different functions; and severely impact someone if there's damage. The brain is just so complex!

    Psychology is actually a really good degree to have, depending on what career you want to go into. So don’t be a rude c*nt

    So at A level from what I can remember, I covered memory, abnormal behaviour (mental disorders), forensic psychology, eating behaviour, research methods.

    At university I've covered: research methods, statistics, study skills, cognitive, psychobiology, developmental, individual differences, conceptual & historical issues (like is psychology a science?), work psychology. Then my optional modules for 3rd year are: forensic psychology, memory improvement, psychology in education and animal psychology!

    A massive range of topics basically!

    I'm a first year forensic psychology student and at the moment I'm pretty confused with the reading. Only one of my modules is related to forensics, so I'm hoping you can help with the others. One module is foundation of psychology which is at the moment social and cognitive. How do I know how much reading I should be doing each week? I've got textbooks I've bought and got from the library, but there's so much especially about other research. I'm finding it overwhelming. Do I need to read about all of the studies? How do I know what's important and what isn't?
