Psychology is a fascinating subject which is all about you! Students will learn about research into a wide range of human
behaviours. Lessons involve quizzes/tests/games to assess knowledge, reading, paired and whole class discussions
and extended writing tasks. Psychology will develop competence in the use of subject-specific terminology and the
interpretation of statistics as well as a precise and detailed style of writing.
You must be curious and willing to engage in
discussion activities to enjoy the subject. Prospective students should be confident in their understanding of scientific
processes as well as their literacy and numeracy.
