We’ve made it to the end of Epiphany Term! We know that Year 3s will be working furiously on their dissertations, and everyone will be revising for exams soon, but take a minute to congratulate yourself on all that you’ve accomplished during this unique academic year.

With a new cohort of psychology students set to join the department in autumn, we reached out to a few current Year 3 students to ask them about their favourite experiences at Durham.
"I've loved how engaging the course has been; from small, entirely tutorial based modules in second year to interactive activities in lectures. It’s made learning the content and attending lectures enjoyable" – Mai Doan, Psychology Year 3 Undergraduate
"As an international student, Durham was a really welcoming community that made my integration so much more simple." – Melisa Yilmaz, Psychology Year 3 Undergraduate
"I found that the psychology placement year director was super engaging and supportive, and I am really grateful that she spent time helping me decide what was right for me. Now that I am on my placement year, I feel connected to the psychology department, and I'm looking forward to returning to Durham next year!" – Kyle Kelleher, Psychology Year 3 Undergraduate
"When I close my eyes, I see... Dazzling lectures by funny and interesting experts, mind-blowing Friday seminars, stats memes, crawling up Cardiac Hill in autumn (sliding down it in winter!). Not even mentioned college, societies, or social life!!" – Tom Gourley , Psychology Year 3 Undergraduate
