Course summary

Overview

Our Educational Psychology degree is informed by our Centre for Research in Early Childhood and the Psychology Centre for Health and Cognition, and builds on our externally funded projects on neuroscience in education.

Within this course you'll discover the science of learning in groups and individuals, and gain the research skills you need to investigate and generate new knowledge in the field.

You'll also explore your professional identity through a work placement opportunity in your second year, and use the lens of psychology to explore local, national and international policy and practice in order to transform lives.

This optional placement year provides you with the opportunity to identify, apply for and secure professional experience, normally comprising one to three placements over a minimum of nine months. Successful completion of this module will demonstrate your ability to secure and sustain graduate-level employment.

How will I be assessed?

Assessment is continuous, and can include:

  • Essays
  • Examinations
  • Group presentations
  • Research-based reports
  • Portfolio-based work.

We’ll provide you with regular feedback on how you're doing and give you regular guidance on how to improve your skills, knowledge and understanding.

How will I be taught?

Teaching is through a mix of lectures, seminars, individual tutorials and practical lessons.

Seminars are usually more informal than lectures – they're opportunities for you to discuss, ask questions and get involved in activities and debates. Bookable tutorials enable you to have one-to-one discussions with staff.

You’ll be taught by experienced and respected University staff. Throughout the course they’ll introduce you to their specialisms and research interests.

You’ll also benefit from visiting speakers – these include early childhood setting leaders, play therapists, children’s services, educational advisers, specialist researchers and international visitors.
