I study on this programme

I chose to study Psychology at Richmond specifically because of the duality of the programme. It focuses on both Qualitative and Quantitative research which is unique for an Undergraduate programme because most other Universities focus on only one aspect of research.

The professors are always present on both campuses and are very accessible. They understand the needs of students and are very good at helping us to achieve our goals. The courses are so interesting and there is such a wide variety of Psychology that is taught here. The professors are experienced researchers with external connections in the Psychology profession, which is extremely beneficial for the students!

The Psychology programme has made me even more intrigued about the field of Psychology than I was before. The professors, the courses and the environment prepare students to go into any field of Psychology and the internship opportunities both in London and around the world are abundant and very hands-on!
