College A-level Students Given Taste of University

A representative from Bangor University's School of Human and Behavioural Sciences delivered a psychology taster session to A-level Psychology students at Coleg Meirion Dwyfor’s Pwllheli campus recently.

The aims of the session were to increase awareness of the range of psychology courses provided by Bangor University, and to learn more about the university’s Welsh-medium provision.

The students enjoyed learning about a variety of themes and components within the realms of psychology during a seminar delivered by the university’s Delyth Kerr. They also took part in a range of problem-solving tasks, which encouraged them to discuss how the brain processes information.

Coleg Meirion Dwyfor A-level Psychology lecturer Nikki Lin Williams said: “We are very proud of the partnership we have with Bangor University, especially our bond with its Psychology department. Delyth Kerr had such a vivid understanding on how to encourage our A-level Psychology students into pursuing the subject into higher education.

“The college also places a great deal of importance on the fact that our students can follow our A-level Psychology course through the medium of Welsh. Across north west Wales there is a growing need for such professionals who can work through the mediums of both Welsh and English. A Psychology degree opens up many career opportunities: mental health counsellors, child psychologists, and speech and language therapists to name but a few.”
