NTU or University of Chester for psychology?

I am being treated as a home student from Chester, even though I hold na Indian passport, there may however be a chance that NTU may treat me as an international student, which means I will have to pay £17,000 a year, and that is a lot of money, however if I go to Chester, I only have to pay £9,000 a year. which makes more sense, however right now I am worried about which uni is better. I have been to NTU twice, and I really liked it there, the accommodation, the course, and it is higher ranking than Chester. I am going to Chester on the 18th this month. Does anyone know which uni is better for psych!!! and I don't know what to do.

Hi @aparna1804 :smile:

It’s great to hear that you are interested in studying Psychology with us! :biggrin:

First things first, you’ll find lots of helpful information about the department, the School of Psychology, here on our website - https://www1.chester.ac.uk/departments/psychology. Under the ‘About’ section you’ll learn about the main academic areas of Psychology that our courses cover. The aim is to provide you with a broad understanding of the subject, which is required for British Psychological Society accreditation. You’ll then get the chance to further your knowledge in specialist areas, and areas that you are really passionate about, through the elective modules at each level. Our Psychology degree programme is applied in nature, meaning that through the course you'll learn to apply your knowledge in lots of different contexts.

We usually have a Psychology undergraduate entry of around 200-240 students each year, with about 100 Single honours and the rest combined honours. Some teaching is all together, but a lot is broken down into smaller workshops and seminars which might have 20 to 30 students in them at first year level. This allows you to really get to know your peers, as well as our teaching staff.

All of our undergraduate students are assigned a Personal Academic Tutor (PAT), who can offer advice and guidance relating to your course, whenever you need it. They can also provide a reference on completion of your degree and offer help or direction to resources for any personal issues you may encounter along the way.

We have lots of current Psychology students who are available to chat online - https://www1.chester.ac.uk/ask. This may be a good way for you to get a real feel for what it’s like to study this degree at Chester, as our current students will give you real honest answers about their experience and the support they receive from the department.

When you visit us during our Applicant Day on the 18th, you’ll get to meet members of the department in person and see for yourself how at home you’d feel here at Chester. Make sure you get as much out of the day as you can, so that you can make the right decision for you. Not only will you attend a subject session, but you’ll have the opportunity to view our facilities at Exton Park, including our accommodation options.

We hope this helps provide you with some initial information, if you have any further questions after visiting us don’t hesitate to get in touch!

Best wishes,
Becky
