What you will study

Alongside core modules, you will study subject-specific modules that will equip you with a foundation of knowledge for your chosen field of study.

Core Modules

These modules support students as they prepare for their postgraduate studies, extending and developing existing language and academic study skills.

The aim of the module is to develop knowledge and understanding of how to conduct an informed literature search, and how to produce a concise description and succinct analysis of literature relevant to professional practice and / or advanced academic study in Psychology.

The aim of the module is to introduce students to social research methods of direct relevance to their professional practice or further academic study in Psychology and familiarise them with standard research terminology. The module will cover qualitative, quantitative and evidence-based approaches to research.

This module provides the appropriate foundation in statistical knowledge and skills to enable students to be successful in the future studies at master’s level. The module offers a grounding in statistics with an emphasis on practical applications and extensive use of statistical packages.

The aim of this module is to allow students an opportunity to engage with the concept of reflective practice. It is recognised that professional knowledge includes inter and intrapersonal elements such as values, previous experiences, emotions and personal capabilities. This module will encourage students to reflect upon what they bring to their studies, personally and professionally, and locate this within a comparative context.

I have a lot of international friends here at BUIC, and I’ve learnt so much from them. There is always a lot to do together both on and off-campus.

I would recommend UGIC because it is based on the main University of Greenwich campus, a cosmopolitan university. At UGIC, there are students from all around the world, and I've made a lot of friends from exciting places."

Gozel Turkmenistan, University of Greenwich International College (UGIC)

I think one of the main reasons the IIM (pre-masters) has been so helpful is because the staff are so supportive and are always able to help me. Whether it is understanding a module or finding out how to sort accommodation, they will help you with everything. I’ve enjoyed studying at Bangor, the people are friendly, and the environment is also really peaceful and safe. It’s given me the best opportunity to succeed in my studies here in the UK.
