      U of St A's psychology course has to be one of the best. The approach is highly modular, with experts in the field teaching the things they know about. However, it's not an easy ride, so don't take it if you're not serious about psychology. The workload is heavy. First and second years write two lab reports per semester, and take a two hour (1st year) or three hour (2nd year) exam each semester. In addition to this, 2nd years have tutorials once every three weeks, for which essays are expected. Lectures are 4 hours a week, with a 2 hour (1st year) or 3 hour (2nd year) lab every week. Psychology is demanding since it leaves little room for the other modules you'll be doing in 1st and 2nd year. Honours is where it gets interesting, but even more difficult - 3rd years spend all day in the department or the library with on average three hours of classes a day. 4th years have seminar based modules but huge amounts of reading. 3rd years write a supervised dissertation, 4th years have one as well, but this is unsupervised. They have a research project to do too. Don't expect too much committment from the department until you're in 3rd year though, since they have 250 students in 1st year, to get down to 60 by the end of 2nd year - it's tough competition.
