What We Look For In Your Application
Applicants should demonstrate an interest in education and psychology in general. We would like to hear about your own thoughts about the education system and psychology and why you are interested in studying this subject at undergraduate level.
This course draws key aspects of education and psychology together in one undergraduate programme. The programme aims to incorporate research-based opportunities and as a result, students can gain the knowledge and skills required for studying aspects of education or psychology of specific interest. The course has been designed to provide a strong base for postgraduate study and beyond.
The four pillars of knowledge; psychology, history, sociology, and philosophy can support a broad understanding of education and psychology, and this in conjunction with the study of local and global issues as well as contemporary psychological theories, aims to enable students to gain depth and breadth in their knowledge.
Study may also include self-funded trips abroad to experience education in other countries. There are currently plans for study abroad visits to Finland and Ireland to observe other global education systems, although these have not been finalised. Students will be responsible for their own travel, accommodation, and living expenses when undertaking such trips.
