What Do Our Alumni Say?

Testimonial quote icon

The Immerse programme has been one of the best experiences I’ve ever had in my whole life, to be honest! In psychology I’ve studied behavioural psychology, cognitive psychology, and we had a whole day to study gender and sexuality because it’s my tutor’s specialty.

For my personal project, I decided to do research about the correlation between the time adolescents spend on their phone and their levels of concentration. We learned about the aspects of the experiment that we could improve upon, such as the diversity of people asked, and the variation of demographics.

I really enjoyed the London and Oxford excursions, but I’d say the Oxford one was my favourite, because it looked like home for me – it reminds me of Brazil for some reason! I loved it, and London was also amazing.

Module 1 - An Introduction To Psychology

Psychology is surprisingly hard to define. Broadly speaking, it is the study of the mind and behaviour, yet this definition raises more questions than it answers. Psychologists study how we think, feel, and make decisions, as well as the unconscious processes and the neural mechanisms that underpin them.

It is widely believed that psychological traits have a substantial genetic contribution. However, to what extent are they influenced by a person’s upbringing and social environment? In this module, you will see how advances in biotechnology have transformed the way we study behaviour and genes.

We often think that our senses and memories reflect the truth, but a wealth of psychological research points in the opposite direction. In this module, you will see how our brains are sensitive to cognitive illusions, seeing things that aren’t there, and missing glaringly obvious things.

This is one of the most exciting parts of the course. In the module, you will get the opportunity to give a presentation on an area of interest in the psychology programme, engage in discussions with your peers, and receive important feedback from your tutor, an expert in the field of psychology.
