Student Profile


I decided to stay for postgraduate study after completing my undergraduate degree in Psychology because of the excellent teaching, and research opportunities. As a small and friendly, but very research-active School, Psychology students are both able to get to know their lecturers well and also engage with ongoing research and new ideas in a dynamic environment. This Masters course has honed my technical and academic skills, while giving me the opportunity to conduct my own research on differences in visual perception for migraine sufferers.
