Mae'r modiwlau a ddangosir yn esiampl o'r cwricwlwm arferol. Byddant yn cael eu hadolygu cyn blwyddyn academaidd 2018/19. Bydd y modiwlau terfynol yn cael eu cyhoeddi erbyn mis Medi 2018

Blwyddyn un

Level four of the degree occupies the autumn semester of year one and is designed to help you make the transition from school to university level study. It consists of three modules. These modules will:

  • introduce scientific thinking skills and use example research topics to help you learn the differences between good and bad science;
  • provide an overview of the main subject areas of psychology;
  • introduce the basics of research methodology through practicals and research design teaching.

Blwyddyn tri

Level six is the final year. Here, you will undertake a supervised research project that runs over two semesters. The research project is an opportunity to carry out an independent piece of research with individual supervision from a member of academic staff with expertise in the research area. In addition to the project, students at level six complete a range of final year modules (commonly around six depending on whether the modules selected are single or double modules). The option modules offer the opportunity for deeper exploration of topics that are close to the research interests of staff.

Mae'r Brifysgol wedi ymrwymo i ddarparu amrywiaeth eang o opsiynau modiwl lle’n bosibl. Ond byddwch yn ymwybodol er y byddwn yn gwneud pob ymdrech i gynnig dewis, gall hyn gael ei gyfyngu mewn rhai amgylchiadau. Y rheswm am hyn yw'r ffaith mai dim ond nifer cyfyngedig o leoedd sydd ar gael ar rai modiwlau, a gaiff eu dyrannu ar sail y cyntaf i'r felin. Mae'n ofynnol i fodiwlau eraill sicrhau isafswm nifer o fyfyrwyr cyn gallu eu cynnal, er mwyn gwneud yn siŵr y gellir cyflwyno addysg o ansawdd priodol. Gall modiwlau gael eu cyfyngu oherwydd gwrthdaro yn yr amserlen hefyd, ac er bod y Brifysgol yn ymdrechu i amharu cyn lleied â phosibl ar eich dewis, byddai'n syniad da i chi ofyn am gyngor gan yr Ysgol berthnasol am y dewisiadau modiwl sydd ar gael.

Dysgu ac asesu

Sut caf fy addysgu?

The degree is based on a range of core (mandatory) and optional modules. Each module is supported by electronic teaching materials (such as lecture recordings) shared via Learning Central, part of the University’s virtual learning environment.

Modules are likely to include lectures, seminars and group discussions, tutorials, and group work, and you will be expected to apply the skills you learn through tutorial presentations, research practicals and a research project.

At levels four and five you will receive detailed guidance to ensure that you have a firm foundation in relevant experimental skills. Tutors will ensure that you have achieved an acceptable level of competence before you progress to level six. At level six, you have an element of independence and are required to design, conduct, analyse and report individual project work. You will meet regularly with a supervisor to discuss methodologies and practical work.

Feedback
You will gain feedback on your academic progress in many ways throughout your studies: for example, during your project supervision or practical classes, tutorials and seminars, and Q & A sessions with lecturers. You will also receive written comments on the coursework you submit and have ample opportunities to discuss issues with teaching staff. We encourage you to use every opportunity to interact with staff in this way. You will receive detailed generic feedback on examinations via written question-by-question analyses of students’ answers, together with a breakdown of your marks. You should also examine and understand the basis of our marking criteria and familiarise yourself with how the contribution of different cognitive skills are captured by the grading system. While formal written feedback is clearly an important feature in supporting your intellectual development, it is not the only source and indeed you may also find it useful to test your own knowledge and understanding with friends or make use of the blogs/discussion boards associated with each module.

The main purpose of written feedback on coursework is to provide evaluative information to help you understand the strengths and weaknesses of your work – not to provide a definitive model answer. Feedback is therefore important in the context of improving and enhancing your cognitive skills. It is also intended to support your development as independent learners. In order for feedback to serve this function, it is not only important that markers provide useful comments in a timely fashion, but also that sufficient attention is paid to the feedback by the person receiving it. In order to support this process, you will be asked to reflect on the feedback you have received from previous (relevant) coursework and to comment on how this feedback has been incorporated into your current assignment.

Sut caf fy asesu?

Knowledge and understanding are assessed both summatively and formatively via multiple choice and conventional written examinations, essay writing, practical and project reports.

Formative feedback is provided at seminars, tutorials, and practical classes.
