Subject area

When applying to university I was specifically looking for educational psychology degrees. This is a very new course with not many universities offering it.

I choose Loughborough instead of other universities as the course was accredited by the British Psychological Society. Loughborough also had a much bigger campus and better facilities than the other universities I looked at as well as being in the top 10 in the UK for psychology. 

One aspect of the course I have found particularly useful is the module on psychology of the early years. This focuses on how children develop psychologically. This has contained information that I was taught as A level making me feel more comfortable with the material. My personal tutor has helped me a lot through my journey at university, when it came to writing my first essay, I was unsure on how to start and write an academic essay at university level. After some a few discussions she gave me guidance making me more confident in myself and the work.

On graduation I would like to further my studies and complete a master’s in educational psychology, in the hopes to one day be an educational psychologist. Loughborough has helped me prepare for this by providing me with a range of modules such as learning to be a psychologist and research skills which will help me with my career in psychology.
