I'm doing psychology at uni and I love going to the lectures and just the theory side of it. But I just cannot bring myself to like research methods at all!!!! It's not that interesting and my weekly practical session has so much group work, it's so draining. I ended up not going to it today. I don't know how I'm supposed to cope with it for the next few years!

Should have gone to Birkbeck then. Their BA is actually a BA. But yeah, that bit does suck and you just have to do it.

Hi

Are there compulsory research methods throughout your course? Although i don't do psychology, i do a similar subject with research methods and unfortunately it's just something i have to endure! Are you able to pick optional modules on your course? In my second year, although still having to do research methods for one of my modules, my optional modules i picked helped me stay motivated because they were topics i was really interested in. I hope you can do the same!

yes research methods are compulsory for the 3 years. But I am looking forward to the optional module and the other compulsory modules so hopefully that will keep me motivated

Wouldn't you be better off just watching stuff on YouTube and doing MOOCs?
