Here’s 8 ways Psychology students have worked with their School, using course feedback and student representatives, to make their course even better.
1. Too many assessments? Where appropriate, the number of assessments has been reduced to two per module.
2. Deadlines too close together? Assessment deadlines are now spread across the year and no coursework is due on the same day.
3. Too many modules at once in the final year? Modules are now semesterised, so you can control how many you study per semester. First and second year modules have also been semesterised, so you study three modules per terms instead of six.
4. Want feedback faster? Feedback is now received a week earlier.
4. Want more flexibility with lectures? Lectures are now live streamed and recorded.
5. Need more information on graduate careers and opportunities? Skills and employability weeks have been introduced, including experts in industries and careers where your degree is highly valued.
6. Not enough opportunities to meet fellow students and staff? There are now social events each term for students and staff to further build on our amazing community.
7. More academic support and guidance needed relevant to Psychology? There are now lunchtime study skills sessions with Dr Paul Dickerson.
8. More flexibility needed arranging meetings with Academic Guidance Tutors and supervisors? Meetings can now take place with AGTs and research supervisors either online or face-to-face, to suit your schedule.
