The psychology programme covers a diverse range of modules, allowing us to explore different branches of psychology and figure out the most fascinating for us. Whether you are interested in clinical, forensic, or cognitive psychology, DMU provides a well-rounded curriculum that caters to various interests.
The university provides modern facilities, including research spaces and equipment. These resources enhance the overall learning experience and the development of practical skills. Therefore, apart from regular lectures, we attend seminars (interactive discussions), workshops (practical classes with psychological software), and tutorials (practical demonstrations with psychological software and equipment).
DMU has strong connections with industry professionals and organisations. This facilitates opportunities for placements, internships, and networking, giving us a head start in careers upon graduation. During my first two years, I completed two Psychological internships, a Spanish language course, a TEFL online course, and participated in two academic-led trips abroad. This year, I am doing a student exchange in Psychology in Spain!
The psychology student community at DMU is vibrant and inclusive. There are various student-led societies and events that provide opportunities to connect with peers who share similar interests. Additionally, Leicester is full of students and is ranked as one of the most affordable cities for us.
It is worth noting that DMU's Psychology programme holds necessary accreditation from the British Psychological Society (BPS), ensuring that the curriculum meets the highest standards and we can pursue the career of Practising and Accredited Psychologists.
Education 2030 - a new teaching programme in a block format, meaning that one or two subjects are covered at a time instead of several at once. I have not experienced it yet as I am away. However, recent data obtained from our students shows that it has been a game-changer, significantly reducing the workload.
