What Our Students Think

Working with patients was obviously a chance to apply learning and practice skills, and supervision was helpful with this. Being able to listen to a patient’s (guest speaker) experience first-hand and ask questions was interesting and helped increase understanding.

I also really enjoyed is the ‘hands on’ learning approach and being able to learn from other students on the course. This included ‘role play’, experiential exercises such as simulating panic symptoms via hyperventilating as well as experiencing therapy from the client’s point of view, which helped me gain a better understanding of the different interpersonal skills and processes and how these can impact on the therapeutic relationship and progress.

For someone who has always had an interest in the research process, the great emphasis placed on this within the department at Southampton was a real draw for me.

Most of my highlights were based on role-play exercises such as walking through the campus with my hands covered in jam pretending I had OCD, to understand how it felt.

The degree course was great because it encouraged us to think for ourselves and exposed us to lots of aspects of psychology to help us identify our interests.
