DEP: Year 1 – 3.2 Research Modules

In addition to the academic and placement learning in Year 1 trainees also take 6 research-related modules. The aim of these modules is to facilitate the development of research skills that allow trainees to conduct research during the doctorate and beyond as a practising educational psychologist that is of high quality and which allows trainees to exercise evidence based practice, i.e., to integrate their own judgement in relation to individual children with knowledge of research findings to facilitate decision making processes as an educational psychologist.
