This module is designed to develop core skills in both this subject area and in general undergraduate level academic areas and although we do expect students to work hard, they should be more than rewarded by the added employability that comes from being skilled in this domain. Students’ business career will be characterized by change. Students’ success in participating, managing and eventually leading change in their organization will be defined by their record of achievement in this regard, and learning from the experience and theories of others will therefore be invaluable to student development as an organisational leader.

Sustainability Current challenges such as population growth and the widening gap between nations, the concerns around water, food and energy security, or the fast-paced environmental changes and loss of biodiversity have become key factors that any informed individuals, and business managers in particular, can no longer afford to ignore. The concepts and tools explored in this module aim to provide the knowledge, skills and confidence to argue the strategic business case for a 21stcentury business mindset, shaped by ethics, transparency, accountability and efficiency, and based on strong and committed attitudes, and operational processes and procedures to champion business agility and resilience, ensure regulatory compliance, improve efficiency, reduce costs and minimize waste and other negative impacts on the natural environment, and engage with stakeholders through collaboration to lead innovative change for meaningful and long-lasting businesses.

The module will encompass the need to accommodate potential threats from the possibility of emerging disruptive technologies and the risks posed by the ever-increasing presence of artificial intelligence.

BSc (Hons) Psychology
Research Methods 4 The module aims to consolidate students’ learning in the areas of research methods, statistics and experimental design by requiring students to undertake a research project as a group. Students will use the experience of producing a short mini-project as a method for not only providing the necessary experience prior to producing their final year project but also to encourage an assessment of students’ own abilities as independent learners and researchers. The mini-project as such also forms an important milestone in the students’ reflection of their own personal development and potential as an active learner.

The aim of the module is to apply acquired theoretical and practical skills by designing and conducting research, and analysing data, as a group of researchers. Students write up the research independently and individually. The module is designed help students decide not only the topic of their final year project but also the type of investigation and method they wish to pursue.
Research Methods 3 The module aims to consolidate the learning from Research Methods 1 & 2, and to prepare students for the mini project in the next Research Methods module. This module will introduce more advanced statistical parametric techniques. In this module students are also encouraged to reflect on their own development and the progress made in this and other areas related to the empirical side of Psychology.

The module will at first review ANOVA and other final elements from Research Methods 2 in the previous semester. As such it will also provide students with the opportunity to practice experimental design and rehearse the necessary skills for completion of a short mini-project.
Applied Cognitive Psychology The cognitive psychology module in Year 1 introduces the abstract mental processes involved in our daily functioning such as memory, language and perception. However, most of our everyday life activities are usually comprised of more complex skills. Building on the cognitive psychology taught at year 1, this module focuses on more advanced and specialized topics of cognitive psychology via their application in real life. This will give students a taste of problems faced by cognitive psychologists while also reinforcing the important theoretical aspects of the subject area.
History and Concepts in Therapies and Counselling Psychology The inclusion of a module devoted to this area is one of the unique factors of this programme; traditional scientific Psychology often ignores the counselling or therapeutic alternatives. In this module students will be introduced to fundamental concepts in relation to Counselling Psychology as well as having the opportunity to develop an understanding of issues pertinent to psychotherapeutic and counselling approaches. The aim is that students should – if they wish - have gathered enough information about the variety of ‘psychologies’ available to be able to formulate an informed argument with regard to these particular approaches
Applied Social Psychology The rationale here is to not only build on the topics introduced in the year 1 module, but to take an even more applied approach in doing so and also to demonstrate the extent of social psychological theory, practice and its uses. The first section of the module focuses on individual/group processes; the latter section on social relationships and the physical environment theory is backed up by examples of social psychological factors in action by way of examples and discussion focusing on individual, interpersonal and group processes. The aim is also to present a varied menu of topics to demonstrate the wide range of Social Psychology and its application in practical real world settings.
Biological and Evolutionary Psychology The module introduces students to the study of biological psychology and evolutionary psychology. A change to the module title is requested to better reflect this content.
Lifespan 2 This module follows on from Life Span 1 but addresses human life span from other perspectives, thus broadening the students’ understanding of human development from cradle to grave. Development across Life Span is a key area for the understanding of human actions and motivations, and is relevant to all other areas of Psychology.

To familiarise students with psychologically relevant issues relevant to human life from conception to old age. Includes discussion of the methods for studying development and important theories and placing these in a modern 21st century context.

You will learn how to assess the current global business environment and design appropriate international finance management strategies. This will develop your understanding of multinational financial management through interpretation and analysis of strategic financial information. You will examine recent multinational financial management issues and their impact upon international organisations.

Mergers and Acquisitions Mergers and acquisitions are transactions where the ownership of companies is restructured or consolidated with others, transforming their size, activity, and competitive position. In this module, you will study how the flow of capital changes when companies are taken over or sold off, and the larger continuous international reorganisation of industry. You will learn how theories of corporate finance, economics, accounting and financial management work in practice, and how strategy and organisational behaviour apply to real-world financial problems. You will also learn wider-ranging economic and political effects involving tax, regulation and government policy interventions.
