20 Credits SPRING

Aims/Description: The aim of this module is to provide students with the opportunity to apply their learning from the first 2 years of their Psychology degree by undertaking a six-week part-time placement that would be completed alongside their other third year modules. Students will work alongside local community partners to complete project work that will make a tangible contribution to an organisation, local community, or specific service user groups. This module will enable students to see how a wide variety of professionals from different psychology, health, education, social work, youth work and other backgrounds work together to address the health and well-being of local communities.
