As a student in the Department there are a variety of opportunities which may be available to you. These include:
- Study Abroad
- Voluntary Research Assistant
Psychology supports students in both the BSc and MSci programme pathways who wish to broaden their academic and cultural experience by choosing to study abroad for one semester as part of their degree studies. This is an exciting chance for students who wish to widen their horizons and immerse themselves in a different culture and encounter how the discipline of Psychology is viewed and taught at universities in Europe or North America.
We are currently expanding the range of international exchange opportunities that we offer our students. For example, under Erasmus agreements students might like to study for a semester at either Maastricht or Radboud universities in the Netherlands, where Psychology classes are delivered through the English language.
The Erasmus programme provides mobility grants, which cover additional expenses of studying abroad and students are exempt from tuition fees at the host university. It is increasingly popular for our students to look to studying abroad in North America where we have a wide range of partnership colleges and universities in both Canada (University of New Brusnswick) and the United States (e.g., Queens College – New Work; Columbus State University; St. Norbert’s College; Mercer University – Georgia; University of Northern Iowa). The tuition fees for the semester abroad will be those of the University of Chichester (i.e., the same as any other semester of study at Chichester) and not of the host North American institution. Students who wish to take up the opportunity to study abroad liaise with the Department’s International Exchange Officer, Dr. Ian Tyndall, to ensure that the modules selected for study at their chosen university meet the requirements for a British Psychology Society accredited degree. Students are further supported in the application process by the University of Chichester’s International Office staff.
