My time in Psychology taught me how to think in a scientific way, how to get to the root of a problem, how to conduct research and how to interpret results in a meaningful way.

The undergraduate degree at Southampton was an eye-opener in terms of how the scientific approach was applied to the complex issues of human experience.

I participated in the Volunteer Research Assistant (VRA) scheme, which was great to get involved in, and I think that gave me the confidence to apply for the role which I’m now getting publications with. It was also a great opportunity to see more about the lifespan of a research project as a whole; not just the essay side of things.
