Tanzanian Mkyeku shares her student experience at UCLan Cyprus
Enjoying the student life at our overseas campus, Mkyeku tells us how it is studying BSc (Hons) Psychology in Larnaka.
I personally enjoy studying BSc (Hons) Psychology, at UCLan Cyprus since it provides all the necessary facilities that a student needs. The small classes allow close interaction with lecturers and, handily, the teaching rooms are in close proximity to one another on campus.
The student support team are on hand to help with our needs and enquiries and there are counselling services offered by the school psychologist by appointment, which are a huge help, especially when things get overwhelming.
I find using the website Blackboard for learning and the Library’s facilities are both extremely helpful for our assignments and projects. Ongoing seminars hosted by the School give you a glimpse of every module and what is going around the world, which is quite insightful.
We’ve been using MS Teams to assist with our learning during the pandemic and this has been good at ensuring that we don't fall behind on schedule or modules. If you’re interested to hear more about Cyprus, see my blog post on why you should consider studying at UCLan Cyprus.
