BSc (Hons) Psychology and Counselling Studies

1. Welcome!
Welcome to the Directorate of Psychology. Your degree programme is designed to prepare you
for a wide range of career opportunities with an emphasis on working with people. They will
provide you with a sound academic education and will equip you with the appropriate knowledge
and the intellectual, personal and social skills that have been identified as relevant and important
by employers.

Recent years have seen significant developments in the provision of health and welfare services.
Coupled with the profound changes in U.K. educational and employment organisations, the need
to reach an understanding of the roles and challenges facing people has never been greater. The
study of human behaviour permits an insight into social, biological and developmental processes.
Psychology is, not surprisingly, a highly popular option for study, and your courses will encourage
you to take a scientific approach to this area.

The degrees offered here will examine, from different theoretical and practical perspectives,
contemporary issues, which are relevant to the behaviour and functioning of individuals in the
current climate of change. These programmes are likely to be attractive to students with a variety
of backgrounds, including behavioural, biological, social sciences and humanities.

Combining Psychology with either Counselling or Health Sciences will enable students to focus on
different aspects of people-orientated study. The demand for those with counselling skills and/or
health related knowledge is on the increase and these degrees provide a suitable preparation for
a wide range of career opportunities, involved in provision of health and other people-orientated
services. The programmes are not intended to provide specific vocational training, yet aim to offer
a sound academic education which will equip graduates with a range of intellectual, personal and
social skills which have been identified as relevant and important by employers.

This programme is accredited as conferring eligibility for Graduate Membership of the British
Psychological Society (BPS), and the Graduate Basis for Registration. The latter is the first step
towards becoming a Chartered Psychologist. For more information on the BPS and careers in
Psychology, why not visit www.bps.org.uk.


Good luck with your studies,

Dr. Ashley Weinberg CPsychol
Director of Psychology

1.2    Overview of the Programme

The joint degree is structured to expose students to a balanced programme of both main subject
areas. In accordance with this, there are specified modules which students are obliged to take at
each level, in addition to optional modules. A total of 120 credits per year are achievable, which
are divided between Health Sciences and Psychology or Counselling and Psychology in the
second and third years.

In Year One, three Psychology and two Health Sciences of two Counselling modules are specified
in addition to Research Methods. There is also scope for module choice, which should total 20
credits.

In Year Two, modules for each subject area are specified in addition to Further Research
Methods.

In Year Three there are a variety of ways in which students may achieve balance between the
subject areas and this is largely governed by the choice of subject area for the dissertation, which
carries double the weight of a module.

However in order to comply with BPS guidelines, the dissertation should be an empirical study
with significant psychological content.




                                                                    4

1.3   Psychology Resources
Psychology Facilities

In the summer of 2002, the new psychology laboratories were built in the Allerton Building to
provide state of the art facilities for our undergraduates and future postgraduates, using funding
from the Higher Education Funding Council of England and Wales.

This includes experimental/interview cubicle rooms, an observation suite with a one-way mirror
and an experimental computer suite for teaching and practical use by 30 students at any one time.
This will allow you to carry out experimental work, either on software-based cognitive and
perceptual tasks, or biofeedback studies in controlled environmental conditions. You will also
have access to observation facilities with recording equipment which permits the study of
individual interactions, group dynamics, as well as the opportunity to further develop interviewing
skills.

In addition a common room area is accessible for students and staff to hold informal meetings and
tutorials or indeed to have a cuppa whilst reading their favourite professional publication!

Naturally the Psychology staff team and students alike are enjoying the new facilities and
recognise that it provides the backbone of Salford's successful application for recognition by the
British Psychological Society for its undergraduate programmes.

3.       The Programme Structure or the “House Rules”

    Each degree programme or course is divided into Levels 1, 2 & 3. For full-time students these
     Levels equate to years.

    Each of the 3 Levels is divided into 2 Semesters (Semesters 1 & 2).

    Each semester comprises 15 weeks of which 10 are devoted to teaching

    Each programme is divided into units of study called modules.

    Most of the modules carry 20 credits, some carry 10 and the final dissertation/Community
     Project carries 40. These credits are awarded on the successful completion of a module.

    Each student has to achieve 120 credits per level, 360 over the three years of the degree
     programme.

    In order to pass a module it is necessary to obtain a minimum average mark of 40%.

    Each programme has a combination of compulsory and optional modules.

    At the start of each Level is an Induction Week. It is during this Induction Week that each
     student will be guided as to their selection of modules.

    Some modules are taught across the degree programmes while other modules will be
     exclusive to one particular programme.

    Lectures and seminars provide an integrated learning experience and it is essential for
     you to attend.

    We are proud of our response to changing student needs and the changing work environment.
     For this reason new modules are regularly introduced and occasionally some existing modules
     withdrawn. We therefore cannot guarantee that all the modules listed in the Programme
     Handbooks will be available.


ITIS ESSENTIAL THAT YOU FAMILIARISE YOURSELF WITH THE STUDENT GUIDE (GREEN) FOR DETAILS OF
THE UNIVERSITY REGULATIONS AND PROCEDURES RELATED TO THESE DEGREES. You should read this
Course Handbook in conjunction with the Student Guide. The Student Guide also gives
important information on the support available to students. All Handbooks and Student
Guides are available at the School Reception. The contents sheet for the Student Guide is
in the Appendix of this Handbook.

     Additional sources of support are as follows:

        University website (http://www.salford.ac.uk)
        School Website (http://www.chssc.salford.ac.uk)
        University Student Handbook



                                                                    10
                   This document is available electronically via the School intranet: http://intranet.chssc.salford.ac.uk
Important note on Plagiarism

Contained within the student handbook are guidelines on what is defined as plagiarism. It is well
worth reading these guidelines as many students are unaware that plagiarism can be committed
in a number of ways. Often these are unintentional on the part of the student, e.g. by failing to cite
the author of a piece of work from which you are quoting.


Ethics in Research

You will be asked to consider the ethical matters relating to the research you carry out during your
undergraduate studies. In the final year of the degree it is compulsory to obtain ethical approval
via the School Ethics Forum for your dissertation before you begin to collect data. For further
information on this forum, please ask Dr Ashley Weinberg. In addition it is well worth consulting
the British Psychological Society guidelines on ethical practices in research.




                                                                   11

4.    Aims, Objectives and Learning Outcomes
4.0   Assessment

A range of assessment strategies are used which will provide you with a variety of opportunities to
demonstrate your developing academic and practical skills. This includes essays, practical
reports, case studies, problem-based learning and presentations.

4.1   LEVEL 1


Aim

At Level 1 the main aim of the course is to introduce students to the disciplines, which form a
foundation for the subsequent study at Levels 2 and 3 of the course.


Objectives

      i.     To present the students with a body of knowledge which will act as a foundation for
             the rest of the programme.

      ii.    To enable students to develop an appropriate range of study and personal skills.
             These are designed to facilitate the acquisition of knowledge and to begin the
             examination, discussion and manipulation of the material presented throughout the
             course.

      iii.   To introduce students to the concepts of scientific method, research methodology
             and statistical techniques.


Learning Outcome

By the end of Level 1 students should be able to demonstrate, through a range of assessments,
knowledge of the literature in a given area and the ability to relate personal and practical
experience to theory and emerging analytical skills.




                                                                  12

4.2   LEVEL 2


Aim

      Level 2 builds on the foundations provided at Level 1 and enables the student to pursue core
      aspects of psychology and their related subject in greater depth.


Objectives

      i.     To provide students with the opportunity to broaden their range of studies within the core
             areas. Within Psychology this includes Personality and Intelligence, Biological Psychology,
             Cognitive Psychology, Lifespan Developmental Psychology and Social Psychology.

      ii.    To further develop and enhance research and personal development skills.

      iii.   At this level, students will be able to demonstrate considerable breadth of knowledge and
             continuing development of critical thought.

Learning Outcome

      By the end of Level 2 students should be able to demonstrate, through formative and summative
      assessment, a critical knowledge of the literature in a given area and the ability to relate personal
      and practical research experience to theory and developing analytical skills.




                                                                   13

                              Personal Development Planning
PDP is important for all students, even mature students with years of work experience. It is
a way of reflecting upon your life and planning for your future.
Why is it so important?
We have been told by employers that they are interested, not just in your specialist subject
knowledge (they rate this at number 15 in their list of requirements), but in your:

*Self awareness
*Ability to communicate and get on with others
*Ability to understand your learning needs
*Ability to plan and achieve learning goals
and a whole host of other skills which make you an excellent worker and colleague.
So how can I demonstrate that I have these skills?

Together with your personal tutor and the PDP pack (available from school reception), you
will have the opportunity to reflect upon your experiences:

*In the university
*In your personal life
*In your working life
and to note in your PDP PACK, on paper or on disc, all the skills and knowledge you have
already gained (and how), plus the skills and knowledge you want to gain and develop
during this year and in the longer term future.

So this is an ideal opportunity to celebrate:

*your sporting talent
*your ability to speak different languages
*all the jobs you have done
*your community, family or political activities

SIT DOWN WITH YOUR PERSONAL TUTOR AND GO THROUGH THE PDP PACK.
DON’T LEAVE THIS UNTIL YOUR FINAL YEAR, start now and record things regularly.
When you apply for a new job or career, evidence of your skills and self awareness will be
there in your PDP file.

PDP packs available on the School Intranet: http://intranet.chssc.salford.ac.uk
For advice, see your personal tutor or Joan Loizou (joan@loizou70.fsnet.co.uk)

                                                                  18

         ATTENTION ALL STUDENTS



If you are unable to hand in work on time/attend examinations or
other assessments

YOU MUST:
                           Complete a PMC form
                           Attach documentary evidence (e.g. Medical
                           Certificate) PMC forms wth no evidence are
                           rarely accepted
                           Hand in the PMC form URGENTLY (before the
                           deadline) to Reception for the attention of
                           Margaret Ashurst

Your tutor NO LONGER signs the form. It will be considered by
the School PMC panel. If it is accepted, the Board of Examiners

                           whether you will be asked to re-submit work
                           (such work can only achieve a basic 40% pass
                           mark)
