Kickstart Your Psychology Career at IMU

12 Jun 2020

Interested in helping people but not sure how? Always curious about what makes people behave the way they do? Always wondered what makes some people so likeable, so successful, so driven, so compassionate, yet others are not? What draws people to a degree in Psychology is the versatility of the knowledge and practical life skills that can be gained from the course. A university offering this degree is the International Medical University (IMU). The degree programme at this University offers a strong hands-on and experiential learning for those who are curious and passionate about human behaviour, emotions and thoughts. With a low lecturer-to-student ratio and strong support from student services, students can count on being paid careful guidance as they navigate through their early years in building the foundations of their future career. Armed with knowledge that cover areas like motivation, learning and memory, students can confidently apply themselves to increase their personal motivation, better understand others around them, learn memory improvement tricks, become more productive and effective communicators, while also understanding the principles behind making accurate and informed decisions. These skills will last the students a lifetime! At the same time, if students have always been dreaming of studying in the United Kingdom, IMU offers a smooth transition to get them there through its partnership with University of Strathclyde.

About University of Strathclyde
University of Strathclyde has been twice-crowned as “UK University of the year” (Times Higher Education Award 2012 & 2020). It was recently  awarded “Scottish University of the Year” and also The Queen’s Anniversary Prize, which is the UK’s highest national honour in education. The University of Strathclyde psychology programme shines within the Top 30 in the UK for Psychology courses (The Guardian, 2020), beating Sheffield, Staffordshire, Manchester, East London, and Reading! 91% of Strathclyde students were highly satisfied with its teaching quality.

How to get started on this pathway for your psychology degree?
Get a good foundation for your Psychology education, start off with the initial 2 years at IMU, followed by studies at the scenic Strathclyde (Glasgow), for the next 2 years for an invaluable experience of a world-class education, to graduate with a Bachelor of Psychology (Hon) or Bachelor of Psychology & Counselling (Hon). Those with a more serious interest in mental health, can also opt for a double major to finish with a Bachelor of Psychology & Counselling (Hon), followed by further entry into their 1-year Master of Science (MSc) in Counselling. These programmes are accredited by the prestigious British Psychological Society (BPS), and provisionally accredited by COSCA, which is Scotland’s professional body for counselling and psychotherapy. Upon graduation, Masters graduates become accredited, recognized mental health professionals in the UK! However, students who are pursuing the Bachelor or Master degree in counselling field will not be eligible to register under Lembaga Kaunselor Malaysia.

For those who are keen to study in Australia, IMU also offers a smooth transition to get them there through its partnership with University of Newcastle. Through this collaboration, students can complete the first part of their studies at IMU and transfer to University of Newcastle for completion of their degree.  The Bachelor of Psychology degree will then be awarded by University of Newcastle.
