Teaching Standards

We're proud of our teaching standards, and the experience our students receive. It is one reason why the employability of our students is high, relative to many other UK courses, and why students express satisfaction with our course. And it's no surprise to us when our students (here, Katie Reay) say things like:

"I am currently in my third year of the BSc Psychology course, and despite Lancaster being a long way from home; it really does feel like home from home. I have always enjoyed Psychology and English Language, and was instantly attracted to the Psychology course at Lancaster because of the variety it offers and I was not disappointed. In my time here I have taken a minor in Sociolinguistics and chosen modules which incorporate language in psychology, such as a dissertation in child language development.

"I have found certain things about the degree a challenge, particularly statistics! But the support from tutors and lecturers has been amazing. After gaining relevant work experience, I have been offered a place to train as a Speech and Language Therapist next year. I will be working with adults and children with speech difficulties and disabilities (such as after a stroke). The BA/BSc course offered at Lancaster has definitely given me a strong knowledge and support to go into this line of work!"
