This course uses a variety of learning and teaching methods including lectures, seminars, workshops, group work and independent study. We utilise a range of assessment methods including essays, reports, reviews and presentations. There is only one exam which is in statistics.
Teaching on campus normally takes place on two full days in the week (usually Mondays and Wednesdays*). All additional work, independent study, coursework etc. needs to be organised to fit your own circumstances. We understand that some students need to work but emphasise that this is a full-time course and so if working in the daytime you will need to work on your studies in the evenings.
In addition to learning and teaching, as a student at Aston you will also receive additional support through a tutorial system.

All of our teaching team are research active and the profile of health psychology related research at Aston and our links with practice in the NHS makes us particularly distinctive. Our research expertise includes health promotion and health behaviours, chronic illness management, parental health behaviour, healthy ageing, and evidence synthesis.
