Biography

I chose Petroc because it is local to me and did not require excessive travel.

I wanted to return to education to broaden my options when returning to work after raising my 4 children. As a people watcher, I felt that the Psychology course would be of most interest to me and provide many options for future employment.

I absolutely loved the whole 3 years; however, I feel that I excelled in and enjoyed the research methods modules the most – a highlight of the course was travelling to London to see a Philip Zimbardo talk.

I feel I benefited from studying within a smaller community. My lecturers were very personable and always available to provide guidance.

I had no plans throughout the course of my degree, although I have now got a job with the research department at Northern Devon Healthcare trust, which I could not be happier about!

In the future, I would love a career in research and maybe go on to do a masters degree one day.

I would recommend Psychology and Human Behaviour to anyone who has an interest in this field. I feel that besides learning the content of the course, I have also grown as a person.
