The aim of the programme is to develop students' understanding of the principles of behavioural learning and contribute to their awareness of the physical and social environment which surrounds them and which informs human behaviour.

The programme is specifically designed for Transition year students and will be taught from a scientific perspective with the utmost regard for ethics.

As this is the first year that TY students are undergoing the module, students will be called on to reflect on their own learning and on the programme itself. Throughout the year, students will be asked for their valued feedback on the Psychology programme and any necessary adaptations will be made to best suit the needs of the students.

Updates on the programme will be posted here. For further information on the programme, please feel free to contact Ms. Mernagh.
