You will study three seminar and lecture-based modules: Abnormal Psychology; Cognitive Neuropsychology; and Health & Illness across the Lifespan. You will also complete the Research Methods & Statistics module, where you’ll learn how to conduct a piece of research from initial question to final report. This module prepares you for, and helps you with, designing, conducting, analysing and reporting your individual research projects. You will learn transferable skills, such as critical evaluation and verbal and written presentation of research. Such skills are essential, particularly if you want to conduct research in your future career, whichever area of medicine you go into.
