I was so impressed with the counselling module. I thought it was just going to be like a normal textbook lecture but the professor had a lot of fieldwork experience in counselling. Jihwan You, BSc (Hons) Psychology with Counselling

Learning and assessment

The teaching, learning and assessment strategy aims to develop active learning and takes into consideration the need for you to take greater responsibility for your own learning as you progress through the programme. You will be exposed to a variety of different learning and teaching approaches and activities. Please see the appendix for further details. Specifically, knowledge and understanding as well as transferable skills will be developed through:

  • lectures
  • laboratory/workshops
  • seminars (e.g. problem/discussion based)
  • tutorials
  • projects/dissertations
  • directed and self-directed study
  • assessment-based learning (formative and summative)
  • problem based learning
  • collaborative learning and group work
  • peer mentoring

Our approach is underpinned by research-led teaching which includes being exposed to the specialist research interests and practices of our academic team as well being informed by educational research.

Research

Academics in the Division of Psychology at the University of Bradford are involved in an exciting and innovative range of research at the cutting edge of psychology.

Our research expertise focuses on the application of psychology to understanding health and well-being; cognition and brain research including neuropsychology, perception and developmental psychology, and the connections between identity, social constructionism and narrative.

We have two active research groups:

Applied Health and Social Psychology Group

‎The work of this group draws upon psychological principles and theory to research how a range of issues impact upon health and wellbeing.

Our work has an applied focus and explores the link between subjectivity and the social world in relation to health and well-being, as well as the relationship between biological and psychological processes. The group includes links with a number of researchers from across and outside the University.

Bradford Cognition and Brain Group

This group is a collaboration between the Division of Psychology and the School of Optometry and Vision Science.

It promotes alliance and the sharing of research across the University of Bradford (and beyond) among anyone interested in Cognitive Psychology, or any type of brain functioning or behaviour.

Regular seminars allow individuals to present their research to the rest of the group and encourage discussion of potential research links, including funding opportunities.
