LEVEL OF STUDY
My placement experience was great overall: it taught me plenty and helped me make some really good professional connections. I was given a lot more responsibility than I expected as a placement student.
I do enjoy the salary, but the best part is definitely the people I’ve met – everyone has been so pleasant, welcoming and helpful.
I like how there is such a broad variety of modules that can link with other disciplines such as sociology, criminology and politics.
Life as a student is very different to working 9-5 and I’ve appreciated the challenge of this change so far. I’ve learned to prioritise a work-life balance and value my free time, and it’s allowed me to differentiate between mindsets and strengthen my wellbeing.
I’m delighted to have secured a role with Leonardo as a Graduate Project Manager. My placement experience was invaluable in my job search – particularly in preparing for interview and developing my CV and cover letter.
Psychology is such a large community and it has been so great to find and bond with so many like-minded people.
My placement gave me an insight into the police work conducted behind a crime or death. Analysing post-mortem samples and seeing the effects of certain drugs on people really fascinated me and gave me the opportunity to explore the toxicology world in depth.
A major highlight for me was getting to see my idea turn into a fully functional business with paying clients by the end of my placement year!
The academic staff are absolutely wonderful and one element about the course that really struck me was how genuinely passionate they were about their chosen specialism.
