How you'll learn

We have implemented an innovative Technology Enhanced Active Learning (TEAL):

- Increased face-to-face learning and teaching. Students will spend their timetabled contact hours on campus in a 2.5-day block and have access to a wide range of additional learning and career development opportunities.

- Access to recorded lectures, notes, readings and e-resources through the VLE, so that student engagement in learning takes place beyond timetabled hours.

- Access to industry-standard technology and specialist spaces that help prepare students for their future careers.

- Dedicated time, every Wednesday afternoon, for most students to engage in activities and development programmes such as sports and physical activity, volunteering and student-led clubs and societies.

- A holistic approach to learning and teaching, providing a range of opportunities to actively develop academically, personally and professionally.

- Access to our on-campus and virtual Career Zones - places to receive advice and guidance, meet employers, practice interviews and engage with opportunities for internships and jobs.

- Personalised support throughout the learner journey, with access to academic advisers, skills tutors, career coaches and wellbeing advisers.

- A dedicated portal - Track My Future (TMF) - which provides access to all learning and support services and a personalised student engagement dashboard.

    Guided independent study

    You will be taught by our internationally renowned expert academics, who will employ the most up-to-date and advanced learning techniques to ensure that you get a broad understanding of psychology through your degree. 

    When not attending timetabled lectures you will be expected to continue learning independently through self-study. This will typically involve reading journal articles and books, working on individual and group projects, undertaking coursework assignments and presentations, and preparing for exams. Your independent learning is supported by a range of excellent facilities including online resources, the library and Moodle.

    Academic support

     Our academic support team provides help in a range of areas - including learning and disability support.

    Dedicated personal tutor

    When you arrive, we'll introduce you to your personal Academic Advisor. This is the member of staff who will provide academic guidance, be a support throughout your time at UEL and who will show you how to make the best use of all the help and resources that we offer.


    Each year you will spend around 300 hours of timetabled learning and teaching activities. These may be lectures, workshops, seminars and individual and group tutorials. Contact hours may vary depending on each module. 

    The approximate percentages for this course are: 

    • Year 1: scheduled teaching - 300 hours; guided independent study - 900 hours. 
    • Year 2: scheduled teaching - 300 hours; guided independent study - 900 hours. 
    • Year 3: scheduled teaching - 300 hours; guided independent study - 900 hours.

    Your timetable

    Your individualised timetable is normally available to students within 48 hours of enrolment. Whilst we make every effort to ensure timetables are as student-friendly as possible, scheduled teaching can take place on any day of the week between 9.00am and 6.00pm. For undergraduate students, Wednesday afternoons are normally reserved for sports and cultural activities, but there may be occasions when this is not possible. Timetables for part-time students will depend on the modules selected.

    Class sizes

    Class sizes will be around 150 – 200 in year one lectures, with seminars of around 20-25.

How you'll be assessed

We'll assess you with a mixture of coursework and exams (no exams in the first year). Coursework includes essays, research reports, group and seminar presentations, blogs/online portfolios and a final-year project. 

The balance of coursework and exams in year two will depend on your optional choices. In your third year, half of your assessment will be based on research coursework.

What our students and staff say

Cyberpsychology is all about the interaction between technology and psychology. It's particularly important that we understand the implications of technology for our psychological functioning because technology has advanced at such a rapid pace.

One thing that actually helped me in my current position and in my postgraduate studies was...critical thinking, applying theory to real-life circumstances and also self-awareness practices."
