“During my second year, I’ve had the chance to get first-hand experience of carrying out psychological research through undertaking an internship within the Psychology Department. My internship was a major factor in securing a placement next year with an NHS community mental health team in Cornwall. I’m really looking forward to doing a bit of everything and meeting lots of people in their various job roles and client groups.”Shaun, current student

“I’ve definitely become more independent since being at university. I was so homesick in my first year and I felt very unhappy. I feel so fortunate that I was able to access some free counselling on campus – it really helped. I kept myself busy by going to the gym and joining the Boxing and Trampolining Societies.”Leah, current student

“The highlight of my time at university came last year when I was chosen to do a four-week internship in Ghana with an organisation called Sporting Opportunities. I spent the summer working alongside qualified sports psychologists at the Ghanaian Football Academy, helping young players prepare for the African Cup of Nations. It was such an incredible experience to travel on my own and live and work in another country, especially one that’s so different from the UK. It really took me out of my comfort zone but I loved every minute of it and I’m so grateful I had that opportunity.”Rohan, current student

“I am a first year Educational Psychology student. I found the campus to be an incredibly comforting and safe environment from the moment I moved in. I enjoy sports such as running, going to the gym and yoga and I have found the university incredible for developing these skills. I also attend the sign language society in which we explore deaf culture and British Sign Language, allowing me to contribute to a kinder and more inclusive campus.”Katie, current student
