Hi,

Congratulations on all your offers!
I am currently studying at Middlesex and I am loving my time here
There is so much to get involved in and so many great ways to make friends. There are loads of societies, sports, volunteering opportunities and jobs on campus.
It is a very international and welcoming environment.
In terms of the psychology degree, I have just bumped into one of my friends who is studying it. She has to submit her dissertation today!
She has loved the whole course as it is a mix between theory and practice. So, she really managed to learn loads of skills
All the courses are also British Psychological Society-accredited.
Did you manage to have a look at the campus?

Have a great day and let me know if you have any questions.

Hello!

Firstly, congratulations on those unconditional offers, nice work!

I'll tell you a bit about UEA - I'm currently studying my postgraduate degree here, after having a very positive experience here as an undegrad I was drawn here by the social atmosphere that can be found all over campus - with a bustling main square and hangout spots such as the bars, cafes and our very own lake with BBQ spots at the waterside - its difficult to drag myself home in the summer!

The University and Student's Union provide a huge amount of support, resources and training for clubs/societies and their committee members, so they run to a good standard and provide a great experience for their members. I made many of my close friends at UEA through the rowing team and other societies, so they've definitely been a pivotal part of my time here. Our Psychology Society will be of particular interest to you - check it out here!

The university itself performs fantastically on the academic league tables, coming 12th in the Complete University Guide table and 13th in the Times Good University Guide. Better yet, the psychology school consistently performs well in the National Student Survey, with a 92% satisfaction rating in the 2016 survey.

If you'd like a taster of life as a UEA psychology student, check out the short video I've left for you below. Feel free to ask me any more questions you have about absolutely anything to do with UEA - otherwise, best of luck with your university career!

Congratulations on getting in all of your chosen universities.

I understand the importance of choosing the right university. I'm currently a 2nd year at ARU and I can tell you a little bit about the course and your usual week as a BSc Psychology student at ARU.

The course is accredited by the BPS so if you're looking to go further into studying or specialising in certain areas you would have a degree with accreditation by the recognised British Psychological Society where you can also get a graduate membership. You would have 10 contact hours split across 3 days. 7 hours in lectures and 3 hours in practical seminars. The lecturers are very experienced and easy to talk to and there is a wide range of specialism in the department so whatever area you are interested in there is a high chance you would find someone in that area with a PhD in the area. The modules are very interesting and you don't only learn the theory but the application of the theory which makes learning it more worthwhile.

aside from the course, there are a lot of opportunities at ARU and societies where you can meet like-minded people and make new friends. From sports groups such as tennis, ultimate frisbee, football, basketball and so on to societies like the enterprise society, fashion society, psychology society etc.

Hope this helped with your decision you can get to the ARU website to find out more about the modules


Congratulations again

Christhannah ARU

Congrats!
I'll keep this short and sweet. The psychology department at aber are like one big family! I say this as an outsider with friends on this course. There are so many opportunities at aber that just aren't advertised enough so if you can I'd advise doing some digging about 😊

University of East Anglia is the only respectable instuition on this list, not going there would be a grave mistake in a over graduate producing field like psychology... to specialise in psychology youll need a masters... a higher ranked uni will open doors easier to that. Be smart go to UEA.

Wow - five unconditional offers! Congratulations - truly fantastic! :yay:
Although, five offers means that you have a very hard decision to make as to which Uni to choose... :confused:

When choosing the right University, you'll need to take into consideration many different factors - the course, location, student life, job prospects - these are some of the main factors for you to consider.

I’m sure that you’ve done plenty of research into the course you’ve decided to study, and to the five different universities you’ve applied for. As for Psychology at Aberystwyth, the subject of Psychology has been named top in the UK for teaching quality and student experience by the Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide 2018. And on a whole, Aberystwyth University has been named University of the Year for Teaching Quality by the Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide 2018 (https://www.aber.ac.uk/en/news/archi...206783-en.html). So at Aberystwyth, you’ll experience teaching quality at its finest, especially in our department of Psychology.

Location wise - Aberystwyth is quite unique in comparison to all of your other choices. Located on the beautiful west coast of Wales, Aberystwyth is a friendly seaside town. Have you ever been to visit? The scenery is just breath taking, with lovely beaches and a relaxing atmosphere throughout the town. If you can picture yourself enjoying BBQ's on the beach during the long summer nights in the sun, then Aberystwyth is the University for you.

Student life offered at your chosen University is a big factor to consider during your decision process - do you want a lively, or a quieter atmosphere? I can tell you a bit about student life at Aberystwyth, as I recently graduated from the University, and still live in the town.

Aberystwyth caters for all kinds of personalities, and offers a student life to suit you. If you're more a quiet type - you can enjoy the peaceful nature of the town. Relax on the beach, or take advantage of Aberystwyth's rich café culture, visit galleries like the Ceredigion Museum located in the town, or the galleries that the National Library of Wales has to offer.

If you're the outdoorsy type, right on Aberystwyth's doorstep are wonderful locations such as Nant yr Arian, that provide great spots for wandering through woodland, trekking up hillsides or cycling down mountain bike trails.

But if a lively atmosphere is more suited to you - Aberystwyth offers fantastic nightlife as well! It's hard to believe that the peaceful town transforms to such a lively nature at night. From friendly pubs to cocktail bars and clubs, Aberystwyth offers it all. The Students' Union also organizes events ranging from a Hypnotist to Bierkeller (beer festival). There are also events in venues around Aberystwyth including Open Mic Nights, UV Parties and Quiz Nights. :woo:

I know that it’s a long time away, but it’s important for you to think about job opportunities after you graduate. You should keep in mind that 98% of graduates from Aberystwyth’s department of Psychology are in work or further study six months after graduating. So a degree in Psychology from Aberystwyth will make sure that you’ll have a stable ground beneath you when stepping into the workplace. You also have the opportunity to take advantage of our Psychology course with an integrated year in industry (https://courses.aber.ac.uk/undergrad...r-in-industry/). A year in industry means that during your third year at University, you gain professional work experience in your field of study, before returning to University for you 4th and final year of studies. It’s worth mentioning as well that we also offer a Psychology degree with an integrated year studying abroad (https://courses.aber.ac.uk/undergrad...e-year-abroad/). Participating in any of these schemes will give you excellent experiences that employers will highly value, and you’ll be sure to stand out against your competitors when applying for jobs after you graduate. :smartass:

Well – that’s me done for now! I hope this will help you when making your decision. Remember to do lots of research before making your final choices – and I hope that you reach a decision soon! :crossedf:

If you have any other questions that I can help you with – give me a shout! :cute:

Pick the one you personally prefer. Have you been able to visit any of them? Are you able to? I would recommend doing so if you can, as this can give you an idea of what life on campus is like. You may also want to look at the specific course structures and see if one offers some particular options you are interested in that some do not, although this is probably something you will have less ideas on at the moment naturally.

If there are any specific extracurricular activities you wish to continue with, it would be sensible to see if those are available in some capacity there (however most things will be, but if you're e.g. a county level athlete and wish to continue developing that, consider their participation in BUCS or similar). Even if you aren't able to visit the uni specifically on an open day, visiting the "host" city can be helpful as you will be living there for three years (and usually 2-3 of those will be out of halls). You can also consider the relative costs of living/rent in the various cities.
