Course summary

How do labels affect children’s identity? How does our individuality affect the way we learn a subject? Do our emotions alter our ability to learn? Educational Psychology draws on a wide range of perspectives in psychology, to build an understanding of how children develop and learn. It takes account of the social and cultural contexts of children’s lives and schooling, as well as their individual growth and development.Here at Manchester Met, we are working with key partners in services, schools and communities across Greater Manchester and beyond to create a vibrant place for study. This course will bring theory and research from psychology to life by looking at its influence in key areas for education. Our course themes reflect priorities shared with our partners and with local and national policy-makers such as school readiness, inclusive cultures of practice and health and wellbeing. On our three-year course, you’ll experience placement opportunities to develop an understanding of the different psychological approaches needed to address social problems and you'll use data from real-world projects to develop skills in research and evaluation with academic staff.Learning psychology through its real-world applications will provide you the best opportunity to develop a deep understanding of psychological theory and practices. For example, you'll learn to understand the experiences of children with special educational needs or disabilities. The Living Lab is at the centre of the Educational Psychology course. It is a place of connection where you'll develop the knowledge and skills to become independent researchers. You'll cover all the core areas of psychology set out by the British Psychological Society, applied to the context of education. **This degree is accredited by the British Psychological Society (BPS) for the Graduate Basis for Chartered Membership (GBC).****Features and Benefits*** **Accredited course**- Accredited by the British Psychological Society, with eligibility for Chartered Membership of the BPS.* **Teaching expertise**- Lecturers with professional experience in educational psychology and active in research in health, education and social care.* **Develop your skills**- Real world approach to teaching, including our dynamic Living Lab.* **Real world experience**- Work placements in schools and early years settings.
