Caitlin Taylor

Psychology BSc (Hons)

'In your first year, you cover a very wide range of theories, this helps everyone gain a basic understanding of the key concepts in each module. The first two years of the course really open your eyes to what psychology actually involves. When you get to third year, you really get a sense of your strengths and can tailor your studies to your chosen career. I have chosen to study adolescent development, counselling approaches, clinical and educational psychology. I am very passionate about going into a career in therapy with adolescents and young adults so these four modules will all help me build a strong foundation of knowledge for my chosen career.'
