From our students

I chose psychology because it combines my interest in biology with skills and information you can apply in almost any workplace. I often find myself in situations that can be linked back to what I have learned from my lecturers (e.g. mental health, prejudice), and I find it fascinating to understand these phenomena which play such a big role in people's lives.
— Anna Hejlova, Psychology BSc (2018)
