Hannah Eaton | BSc Applied Psychology
"Current MSc: Brain Imaging & Cognitive Neuroscience at the University of Birmingham. I studied a BSc in Applied Psychology at UWTSD, and it was the best decision I have ever made. Before starting my undergraduate I had rubbish GCSE’s and had been out of education for over five years, I thought I had no chance of getting in, but I did! Across the three years, I not only gained skills which allowed me to enter an MSc, but I received support and guidance from such an incredibly understanding and knowledgeable set of lecturers that I couldn’t have wished to study anywhere else."
Katie Magness | BSc Applied Psychology
"Studying for an undergraduate degree in Applied Psychology at UWTSD helped me to gain confidence and improve my existing skills, as well as to enhance my knowledge and understanding of Psychology and to develop new skills. The course covers many different areas of Psychology, and I particularly enjoyed learning how to apply Psychological theories and models to everyday real-life situations. Following graduation, I applied for and was offered a PhD studentship looking at Complexity in Healthcare within rural Wales."
Jolene John | BSc Applied Psychology
"I found the Applied Psychology course thoroughly enjoyable throughout, the wide range of modules that were covered kept the course interesting. The different ways in which assignments were presented has taught me many new skills and helped to build my confidence. Presenting to an audience was once the most daunting thought, I feel I am now able to do this with ease. The modules cover a vast range of psychological perspectives from birth to old age, providing a sound insight into how psychology is applied to our everyday lives. I thoroughly enjoyed Applied Sports Psychology; my dissertation was based on theories that were taught during these lectures. I have since gained a place at Cardiff Metropolitan University on the MSc Sports Psychology programme."
Cassandra Dalton | BSc Applied Psychology
"I thoroughly enjoyed the Applied Psychology degree which I studied at UWTSD Carmarthen campus. I found the program extremely interesting and varied. The course is well structured and very diverse which can lead you to many different career paths. The lecturers were always helpful and supportive throughout the course. After I finished my degree, I started working at Pembrokeshire College, and I am currently completing my PGCE with the prospect of becoming a teacher in the Psychology department at the college."
Jeyda Hunt | BSc Applied Psychology
"Since leaving UWTSD, Carmarthen I embarked on a Masters course in Cognitive Neuroscience and Research Methods in Swansea University. I believe that the BSc Applied Psychology course gave me the foundation in psychology that was needed to further my academic career. I thoroughly enjoyed my time at Trinity and enjoyed the applied elements of the course. Since completing my MSc, I have taken some time to raise funds for my PhD which I plan to undertake next year in the area of neurodegeneration and neurogenesis."
Kitiaria Muldoon | BSc Applied Psychology
"The three Psychology Professors at Trinity, Carmarthen are hands down the best teachers I have ever had, and they played a large role in inspiring me down the path of psychology. The Applied Psychology course covers a wide range of topics and does a good job of covering the foundations in various fields of Psychology. The Neuroscience module was especially important for me as I now work with Brain Injury clients.
The forensic module was also particularly helpful in understanding the potential causes and motivations for offending behaviour. I now work as an assistant psychologist for a company that specialises in supporting individuals with challenging behaviours. I work with a range of individuals with brain injury, mental health, offending, neurological conditions, and learning disability needs. I would highly recommend the course at Trinity St David, Carmarthen to anyone thinking about pursuing a career in Psychology. It is nice to have this opportunity in the Carmarthenshire area, as so many students end up travelling away to study."
