Nisha Sykes

BSc (Hons) Psychology, Psychotherapy and Counselling | 2019

"All the tutors have been amazing and in particular, the support of Dr Jacqui Harrison, my final year personal tutor, has been tremendous. Without her unfaltering support and encouragement, I would not have achieved what I have. The tutors’ depth of knowledge makes such a tremendous difference."

Dominic McConnell

BSc (Hons) Psychology | 2018

"After graduating from the University of Bolton in 2018 with a BSc (Hons) Psychology, I spent the summer applying for jobs and emailing organisations offering my services. I focused specifically on mental health settings due to my career aspirations of becoming a Clinical Psychologist. Fortunately, the organisation I had been on a placement with during the final year of my degree had a vacancy for an Assistant Psychologist, and they invited me to apply. I interviewed for the job with great confidence due to the skills I had learnt from the placement, which was a core part of my final year at University, and thankfully, I was successful.

Since starting as an Assistant Psychologist I have progressed from a part-time role to working full-time, and am enjoying every aspect of it. Alongside the practical experience, I have also taken on a voluntary role as a Research Assistant at the University of Manchester; wanting to give myself the best possible chance of being accepted onto the Clinical Doctorate programme in the future."

BSc Psychology | 2017

"My course is informative and in-depth for me to further pursue my counselling career. I like studying at the University of Bolton as the classes are small and it is person-centered. "
