Student Profile

Kerry (CertHE Psychology student)

What is it like being an online student? 

Being an online student is great as I can work at my own pace and within my own time. As I am not in front of anyone else, I do not feel that I am being put on the spot when it comes to my learning. I can work within my own space allowing me to use tools such as music which helps me focus and does not interfere with anyone else’s learning.  

Why did you decide to study Psychology? 

I decided to study Psychology due to personal reasons, through my past experiences I have been able to gain an insight into the benefits of mental health services. This motivated me to gain a Psychology degree so I can use my qualification to guide me into to a career that helps empower people to get the help that they deserve and to give something back to the community. Studying Psychology has allowed me to gain more personal insights to progress from the issues that I have experienced regarding other people’s views towards me. As I am gaining academic knowledge to support my hands on experience, I feel more confident having learned from both sides which has had an overall positive effect on my studies and my wellbeing.  

What would you say you have enjoyed most about this course? 

I have enjoyed learning new things about myself whilst studying Psychology which has helped me with my own personal circumstances. Although this course is challenging, I still find it very interesting. This has been helpful as it has allowed me to stay engaged which has contributed to successfully passing my assignments first time even when initially, I was not very confident on the assignment question.
