“GCU was always a comfortable campus to visit, it felt like a second home at times!”

2020 BSc (Hons) Applied Psychology graduate Amy Kirkland shares her insight into life at GCU and life after graduating from university.

I chose to study at GCU because…

I was interested in Psychology and GCU was the only Applied Psychology course in Scotland, which stood out to me more as the course covered different areas of work within psychology.

The most important aspect of my university experience has been…

The support received throughout my time at university was brilliant. Tutors are keen to have a close relationship with students in order to benefit your learning experience – it’s a comfortable environment. I felt feedback was always constructive and helpful – it really helped me better my grades over the years.

My biggest lesson learned so far is…

Always set yourself enough time to complete tasks – time-keeping is essential to perfecting your work, allowing you to submit projects with confidence.

I’m proud to be part of the University for the Common Good because…

It was always a comfortable campus to visit, it felt like a second home at times! (Especially in your final years and for exam time).

I get my inspiration from…

My family and my friends – some of which are still currently studying at GCU and working hard towards their degrees, some even completing their Masters!

 

My next steps look like…

I’m currently applying for work as a counsellor within Glasgow – I hope to work my way up and eventually become a Senior Counselling Psychologist.
