Hi, my name is Lauren, and I am currently a second year BSc Psychology student at the University of Hertfordshire 👋

In this blog, I am going to give you an overview of a day in the life studying psychology.

I have really enjoyed the course so far and I am looking forward to being able to tailor my course even more in the third year, when we get to choose modules in areas of psychology that we are interested in: for example Clinical Psychology.

I currently live on campus, so in the morning I walk over to my lectures which take place on College Lane campus. The walk from the accommodation to the lectures takes between 5-10 minutes. The lectures tend to last two hours each with a 10-minute break in the middle. For our research methods lab, we are in the ILab (pictured) which is a room with Mac computers that has all the software we need for the course - for example SPSS. If I have lectures in the afternoon as well, my friends and I tend to have lunch at the local shopping centre in Hatfield called the Galleria.

After our lecture in the afternoon, I tend to go to the LRC on College Lane to complete any reading that I need to do, seminar questions as well as completing assignments and revising for exams.

In the evening, I like to attend an Active Students session, for example boxfit. These sessions are free for all students. I then finish off any work that I needed to complete that day ready for the next day.

I hope this gives you a better understanding into the day of a life of a student studying BSc Psychology! If you have any further questions, please feel free to contact me on Unibuddy 😀
