Course codes for psychology

by Steve Draper, foreign student liaison for the Psychology department.

This page is my own records of courses and course codes, plus notes on unusual ones. It used to be important for visiting students, but nowadays the main University course catalogue is probably better.

Notes on early exit routes

If a student wishes to leave after year 3, having been admitted originally to the honours level 3 course, then the "early exit" route requires two components: a degree programme / plan for them to graduate from, and suitable course codes with credits to use.

For the first component, the programme, then the route is to have them graduate with something like:

  • "C804-2209 Bachelor of Science(Sci-DD) Psychological Stds,BSc(DD)".
  • "C000-0000? Master of Arts (SocSci) (?? Not Hons) ??,MA(DD)". K25? K2J?
    Such programmes are in place for Science and SocSci students.

    If they are in the Arts faculty / college, then they must transfer into Science. Currently this is not a problem; but in future we need to create an early exit programme to use for Arts students, as such transfers to Science will not be allowed (when stats1C is no longer taught).

    The second problem is about course codes and credits. There are two 60 credit codes:

    As we have moved to having many 10 credit courses in level 3, these AOS (Advanced Ordinary Special) codes are no longer useful for this.

    In future this will be fine, as we are moving to posting all 120 credits worth in level 3. However at the moment we have to make up a missing 30 credits based on coursework they have done, but not been examined on, in level 3. We can use PRACTICAL PAPER PSYCH4010 for this.
