Hi ! I’ve accepted my offer at Sheffield Hallam Uni and I’m planning on studying a masters in developmental psychology however I am unsure if I should study a masters in just psychology or developmental. I start September 2020 and I’m wondering if the course was what they expected it to be. I’m aware uni is once a week and it says there are opportunities to volunteer. Has anyone taken part in the volunteering and what volunteering options are there ?

Hey Imaan, I am currently an undergraduate student at Hallam, volunteering for STAR (Student Action for Refugees). I can assure you that there are plenty of opportunities available where you get to volunteer with kids, the elderly and etc. However I didn't look into it in detail as I wasn't really interested in those. You can actually talk to the Volunteering Team based in the Student Union building to discuss your option, and in the mean time, you can check out the link below.

Hope it helps!!

Hey, it depends on if you want to do full time or part time. Full time is one hear and part time is 2 years but its still uni one day a week and I’m assuming you use other days to like take up volunteering and stuff.

Also if you haven’t done psychology as a bachelors I was advised to do the masters in psychology rather than developmental

Thanks for replying! Im doing a psych based undergrad so main reason I'm looking at SHU for developmental psych is because of the BPS accreditation that comes with it (my psych degree isn't accredited) but thanks your answer helped a lot!

Hi leannemellisa,
It looks like Imaan has answered your question correctly. It depends if you want to study full-time or part-time usually to work around other commitments. Let me know if you have any other questions about the course and I will do my best to answer!
