Educational Psychology

Overview

Explore educational psychology and what it means to be a student in an educational setting. You will investigate the place where the two subjects meet and look at how education should adapt to meet the needs of an individual to overcome difficulties and barriers to their learning. Your studies will have a strong focus on research and enquiry.

You will be supported as you learn in a variety of settings including lectures and seminars, workshops and practical labs. Your first-year modules will introduce you to research methods and the ethical issues associated with educational psychology. Your second year will see you take an active role in research to develop and apply your theoretical knowledge, and you will be assessed on a research proposal. In your final year, you will think about the future of education using psychology as a driver of change, and you will research and write a dissertation. 

Please note this course is not accredited by the British Psychological Society (BPS) and completion will not lead to chartered Educational Psychologist status.

This course will enable you to develop graduate expertise in a wide variety of areas, including identifying barriers to learning and devising strategies to help individuals to thrive in an educational setting. You will have specific knowledge of conditions such as autism, and a critical understanding of the local, national, and international contexts of education and policy-based responses that will enable you to operate within a complex and rapidly changing landscape.

You will join a supportive academic community and you will have access to a range of guest speakers who will share their experience and expertise on educational issues. Previous speakers have covered topics including social work, employability and enterprise activity and we have welcomed speakers from the Alliance for Inclusive Education.

Specialist facilities and learning spaces will enhance and inspire your academic and practical development. Your course and assessments will enable you to develop strong problem-solving skills, and group work theory will be embedded throughout your modules to equip you with a rounded skillset in the workplace.  

We understand that full-time study does not suit everyone. That’s why we offer courses which give you the opportunity to decide where, when and how you can get involved in learning. Studying a distance learning course offers the convenience and flexibility to make education work for you. Whether you’d like to fit your studies around childcare, develop your skills while working or, quite simply, want to learn from the comfort of your own home, we can help you gain a qualification at a time and pace that suits your lifestyle.

Like our students on campus, you will have the same excellent teaching and learning resources, however you’ll find these online instead of in a lecture theatre. Not only are all the modules taught online, but you will also have access to an online community and more than 140,000 books and journals in our online library.

To study this course, you will require broadband internet connection with a speed of 2mbps and working speakers. You will need Windows 7 / Mac OSX 10.8 or above and have access to Chrome v63 or higher (recommended), Edge v42+, Firefox v57+ or Safari v6+. Java and Adobe Acrobat Reader will need to be enabled and you will need a minimum screen resolution of 1024 x 768.

          Other study-related expenses to consider: materials that you will need to complete your course such as books (whilst the library provides access to readings recommended for your modules, you may wish to purchase your own copies of some books); you can also make suggestions for books to be added to Library stock; placement costs (these may include travel expenses and living costs); student visas (international students only); printing, photocopying and stationery (you may need to pay for multiple copies of your dissertation or final project to be printed and bound); events associated with your course such as field trips; study abroad opportunities (travel costs and accommodation, visas and immunisations). Other costs could include academic conferences (travel costs) and professional-body membership (where applicable). The costs you will need to cover for graduation will include gown hire and guest tickets, and optional extras such as professional photography.

          As well as your mobile phone, you will also need access to a desktop computer and/or laptop to complete assignments and access university online services such as MyBeckett, your virtual learning environment. You can book and borrow AV equipment through the media equipment service accessed online via the student hub and located in the library at each campus. Equipment includes: 360 Cameras, iPads, GoPros, MacBooks, portable data projectors, portable projection screens, flipchart stands, remote presenters, digital cameras and camcorders, SLR cameras, speakers, microphones, headphones, headsets, tripods, digital audio recorders and PC/laptops (a laptop loans service is provided on campus in the library on both campuses). Student laptops are also available from the laptop lockers located in the libraries.

          This list is not exhaustive, costs are approximate and will vary depending on the choices you make during your course. Any rental, travel or living costs are also in addition to your course fees. If you choose to study via distance learning, you may not be able to access all of the facilities listed if you are not able to visit us on campus.
