Hi, I’ve applied for the MSc Applied Clinical Psychology course and I was just wondering what a typical full time timetable would look like? On the website it says that teaching days are on Tuesdays but would be helpful to know in advance what a typical week would look like!

Hi @Oliviaashton, 😊

It's great to hear that you have applied for our MSc Applied Clinical Psychology course! 🌹

Thanks for your question, I will speak to the academics who run this course and come back to you as soon as I have some information about the course structure.

Many thanks,

Hi there,

During first year, many students choose to live in university owned accommodation as this means that you can mix with people from all different courses and meet lots of new people!

Living in university halls also means that you benefit from having our 24hr security onsite (incase you lock yourself out). Our accommodation is also based on campus so that you're never more than a 10 minute walk away from where your lectures may be held!

If you have any other questions, let me know!

Hi! I applied to the Physiotherapy MSc Programme and I was wondering what the breaks are like. I understand that because it is an accelerated 2 year program that holiday/break time would be less than the BSc programme, but I was wondering if we do have any break time/how long are they?

Does it depend on placements?
How many days is our Christmas break? Do we have a summer break?

Hi there,

Thank you for your question. For our BSc (Hons) Physiotherapy course, qualifications will need to include Biology/PE modules such as Anatomy & Physiology and Physiology of Fitness.

For the best advice on whether you have the qualifications required for this course, I would recommend you reach out to our admissions team at [email protected] as the team may need to look at the modules you are studying.

Best wishes,
Sarah
