Student Profiles

Undergraduate students

The undergraduate students in Psychology will be in their third year. They typically have high points on entry to university and will have completed two years of psychology, including social psychology and research methods.


Consumer Psychology

Students in Consumer Psychology have completed a primary degree to a high level (2:1 or above) and, before the placement, will have completed an international business project and modules in consumer psychology, data science, decision making, consumers across cultures and business contexts and sustainable consumption (I can provide more details if needed). They are typically highly motivated towards industry careers.
