Our Success Stories
At the Psychology School at Buckingham, we are proud of the success of our students and graduates. You will find below what some of our recent graduates have to say about their time at Buckingham and how it helped their careers.
Kelly Ma (MSc of Health Psychology)
I am an international student who is originally from Hong Kong. In 2017, I did half a year in a degree in Medicine – Nursing. I was not happy, and I felt was lost and being trapped in a small city. Hence, I decided to study abroad and chose the University of Buckingham – 2-year degree in BSc of Psychology, so I wasted no time in between.
Destynie Mallory (BSc Psychology with Business and Management )
I began studying at The University of Buckingham in 2016 opting for a January intake instead of September. I completed my studies December 2017, graduating with an upper 2nd Class Degree (2:1) in Psychology with Business and Management and was awarded with The Horlogerie Kandahar Prize for Outstanding Achievement.
Jenna Gillett (BSc Psychology)
During my time at Buckingham, I was able to grow and develop research skills, train in statistical analysis techniques and gain experience working in more applied settings. I started Buckingham with an E in A-level maths, fast-forward a few years and I was granted the opportunity to teach multivariate statistics on the undergraduate degree programme… Anything is possible! Buckingham believed in me when no one else did, including myself.
Sam Fardghassemi (BSc Psychology with Business and Management)
I applied to Buckingham because I was motivated to complete my undergraduate degree in two years. I found the small teaching classrooms as well as the staff-to-student ratio very beneficial for me because it meant that I could ask lots of questions and discuss the topics during lecturers and tutorials and get more out of the programme. Buckingham was a wonderful experience for me and led me to where I am today. I felt that it was more than just a university; staff were really encouraging, and everyone became a lot more like a family to me and that made it special.
Michelle Jenkins (MSc in Health Psychology)
I am is a mature student who studied my Undergraduate degree at the Open University. I came to Buckingham for my MSc Health. Would I recommend a MSc in Health Psychology: yes, I would? During my MSc in health psychology I have learnt the knowledge and theory about many areas that have been incredibly useful in the PWP training.
Anna Temp (BSc Psychology)
Buckingham’s psychology training is heavily focused on the practical aspects of research. Because we conducted over a dozen research projects as part of our on-going coursework, I was fully prepared not just for my First-class undergraduate thesis at Buckingham but also for my postgraduate thesis with Distinction at Edinburgh. I acquired competencies in academic writing, research design and statistical analysis at Buckingham that gave me confidence in my own research, which is rarely found at other universities.
Kathleen Richmond (BSc Psychology)
When I was looking at universities to study psychology, I was told to check the student satisfaction rates as it is one of the most important areas to consider. This meant that Buckingham was an obvious choice, especially after talking to the students. Now that I’ve gone through the BSc Psychology course, I’ve fully understood what made students so happy. The lecturers care so much about you and your future, getting to know you with small classes and individual meetings.
