Psychology is an interesting subject but must be taught well to keep the interest up. We have had a mixture of lecturers, with some being excellent and unfortunately more of them being poor (featuring behaviour such as playing with the lights, not making eye contact, giving one hour lectures, reading off the slide etc.).
The content and structure often follow the textbook and is controlled by BPS so I can understand why the topics are chosen but new lecturers coming into the university did not receive training on how to lecture so subsequently no one turned up because it was difficult to get anything out of the lecture! We would advise that the university trains or prepares new staff coming into the university for what they will be doing and the topics they will be teaching because one lecturer read off the textbook!
In the excellent lectures the lecturer was engaging, recorded the lectures and kept it going at a good pace. It was ideal and what I expected when I came to university!
Assessment of coursework does not relate to your course content and can be somewhat picky but it is very doable and you have, for the majority of assignments, plenty of time to do them!
The content overall is not mind blowingly complex, they tend to drop you in gently!
