Psychology is the study of human behaviours using scientific methods to both analyse and explain different behaviours. Students develop their ability to formulate an argument by presenting and critically evaluating research evidence. Accurate and concise writing is important when conducting research and answering questions. Psychology students recently reported on a memory experiment they conducted.

"What happens when you let a group of first year psychologists conduct a memory experiment? They come back with a 2000-word academic report…good going guys."
Obviously enjoying the course Stephanie Firth said: "I am fascinated by Psychology and would like to study it at higher education. I enjoy the detail of what we are taught, how things are explained, and the discussions we have in class."
