Many people believe that our memory works like a recording device that we can play back at any given time. Yet decades of science has shown that isn’t true. And did you know we can even have false thoughts implanted into memory?
Gamblers are more likely to take risks if a high-value reward is up for grabs. Dr Elliot Ludvig shares why he believes these actions are influenced by memories of previous winning bets.
Your degree credit will come from a mixture of examinations and assessed work.
A total of 40% of your degree credit will be based on second-year modules and 60% on third-year modules. The first year must be passed to progress onto the second year. Your third-year individual project will account for 25% of your final year marks.
In an interconnected world, employers greatly value an international perspective. Studying abroad provides you with a first-hand opportunity to explore how culture influences psychological processes and develop a range of valuable skills that give you a competitive advantage in the graduate market.
Our Department is part of the University’s large global network of exchange partners, with long-standing agreements with prestigious universities around the world.
A particularly popular Warwick option is with Monash University in Melbourne, Australia, acknowledged as one of the world’s top universities. Opportunities also exist in Brazil, China, Germany, Indonesia, Japan, the Netherlands, Poland, Singapore, South Korea, Spain and the USA.
For a full and current list of our partners see: warwick.ac.uk/studyabroad. Typically, when students choose to study abroad, they apply in their second year for a third year of study at a partner institution. Students then return to Warwick for their final year.
We have a range of contacts offering the opportunity for work placements between the second and third year. Students who find their own placements will also be supported to take a year out of study to work.
Our students can also take up a variety of work experience opportunities, both paid and unpaid, alongside their studies or during holidays.
