Hi, I have been made offers from the University of Huddersfield for Bsc Psychology, Bsc Psychology with Counselling, Sociology with Psychology and Behavioural Sciences and I just wanted some reviews from anyone currently studying these degree courses.

Hi - sorry you haven't had a response to this yet. I'm just going to bump the thread in the hope that someone sees this and can help

Why do I do this?

The Universities forums get a lot of questions that are unanswered. This is often because the OP's thread got missed - bumping threads gives them another lease of life and frequently results in someone seeing it and being able to respond

If you would like to help with unanswered questions check out the first part of the list here and don't forget the second part of the list here.

Or if you have questions, get in touch with Puddles the Monkey.

Hi jpSoc

Congratulations on all your offers!

I’ve asked Rachel, one of our Psychology second year studentss to share a little bit about her experience of the course.

She’s said: ‘I just do Psychology on its own and I really enjoy it, the topics we tend to cover range from; developmental psychology (learning about childhood), research methods/data analysis and statistics, social psychology, cognitive and biological psychology and in the second year you do those 4 core modules again (but in more detail) and you also get to pick two optional modules (so this year I’m also studying health psychology and the psychology of victimisation and survivorship).

The things I love about the course:
- I love how interesting my modules are, obviously different people enjoy different things but social psychology, health psychology and biopsychology are probably my favourites
- I love how some lectures are fun and engaging, just recently I’ve had a lecture on perception (a topic in cognitive psychology) and my lecturer changed his shirt without any of the 200 students who take psychology even noticing!
- Psychology in general is just really interesting to know about as it can be applied to pretty much every real-world situation

Why I chose the course:
- I initially started to like Psychology when I picked it at A-Level, and it only confirmed to me that this was something I was good at when my teacher really praised me for my essays and I found that it was something I could quite easily understand compared to my other A-Level topics
- I knew at the end of A-Level that I wanted to do Psychology at University and I’m so happy that I picked the course that was right for me, even in my second year I’m still so happy that I’m still enjoying my course so much!’

I hope this helps. Have you been to an Applicant Day yet? They give you a great oppurtunity to talk and ask questions to tutors and current students about the different courses you’ve applied for. It’s also a great way to experience the university and get a feel for student life here.

If you have any more questions please feel free to email us at [email protected]

We’ll look forward to seeing you soon.
