The mixture between exams and assignments was a good balance. The course content was relevant and interesting. They somehow even made the boring and more difficult subjects interesting and helped with the content when challenging.

Student review
Very interesting course. I felt like some of the research and study areas could have done with some more contemporary research. I felt as though the Arts faculty were not very equipped to support me studying psychology as it sat outside of the faculties supports.

The course was okay. It didn’t really provide me with many career options. Finding a job was difficult upon completion
