Student Profile(s)

Michael Scott Evans

441.jpg “I studied International Management in Brighton for my first degree, but my ultimate goal is to complete a PhD in Psychology. I chose the MSc Research Methods in Psychology at Swansea because it will provide me with the essential knowledge required to meet this goal – specifically the ability to comprehend empirical research and a fundamental understanding of statistical analysis.

My course consists of seven taught modules followed by a dissertation, and I was lucky enough to receive one of the University’s Masters Bursaries to help with my fees. The most noticeable differences between undergraduate and postgraduate study have been the flexibility and the smaller class sizes. The latter has made it much easier to organise social events and has meant that we have all got to know each other really well.

I spent a lot of time researching universities and my shortlist included Oxford, St Andrews and QMU, but it was my visit to Swansea’s Open Day that confirmed my decision. I met with the course co-ordinator and found out more about the structure of the course and the expertise of staff within the department, and it was these which eventually influenced my final decision. My advice for anyone considering postgraduate study is to take the time to visit those universities you are considering. Arrange to meet academic staff and possible supervisors - within a few minutes you’ll get a feel for whether their teaching style compliments your individual learning style.
