Statement on NST Part IB Experimental Psychology teaching for 2020-2021 

Due to the effects of the Covid-19 pandemic and government guidance, we have had to make some changes to the way we deliver our programme in order to mitigate against risks to health and to give you the best possible academic experience in the circumstances. We will continue to monitor and respond to the changing public health situation.  

We are conducting a consultation with all our students this summer about our plans for delivering our programme under the current circumstances. We will be providing you with more information at the start of the academic year, and as the year progresses. At every point, we are encouraging students to provide feedback to ensure we are aware of the student learning experience and to allow any changes to be made if necessary.

The planned changes are:  

All lectures will be delivered online. They will be delivered at the timetabled slots and will be recorded. We expect all students to attend the lectures remotely as a group, in the same way they attend usually lectures in the lecture theatres.

Practical classes will include a mixture of in-person sessions (with reduced class sizes, and subject to government guidelines on social distancing), and more interactive online sessions. As with your lectures these sessions will take place during the slot timetabled for your practical group, whether in person or online.

Submitted coursework will be submitted online and you will be issued submission instructions to follow.

Full details of how the course will be run will be provided later in the summer via the Moodle Site and sessions held at the beginning of term by the teaching team and course organisers.

Supervisions will still be provided, although the format will be variable.


Note on accreditation: For those who have met the examination requirements for NST IA Mathematical Biology, NST IB Experimental Psychology and NST Part II Psychology, the degree received is recognised by the British Psychological Society as conferring 'graduate basis for registration', an essential prerequisite for postgraduate training and practice in certain professional branches of psychology.
