    Hi guys, is anyone studying Psychology at Aston? I was just curious about the intensity of the course & the workload considering there’s 10 modules a year. How does that work out with assessments? It sounds pretty intense & I do have mental health issues so i’m not sure if it’s the best course for me to do.


    I’m still waiting on Aston to reply to my UCAS application but I’m just exploring my options.

    Thanks in advance xx

    Hi,

    Good luck with your application. I studied a combination of Sociology / Psychology during my time at Aston and had a lot of friends studying single honours psychology.

    Honestly, I never found the course too intense. The way it was structured had far fewer lectures than a number of friends doing courses such as Engineering and Chemistry.

    The balance for this was the fact the course required far more independent learning, a lot of reading was required to expand on the basic concepts, however this almost acted like a cheat sheet for the assessments.

    Also, we have plenty of counselling services available to our students and try our best to support the mental health of all of our students. Doing a degree can be a stressful experience.

    Hope that helps, any questions just give me a nudge.

    Josh
