Student connects with psychology and aims to work within education.
Carrie Munroe joined Anglia Ruskin University after she realised that the course she was on at another university was not the right course for her. She decided that she wanted to study psychology as she had really enjoyed it at A level so she came to Anglia Ruskin University where the right course was available and was immediately ‘hooked’ on the subject .
Now three years on, she has graduated from the University, not only with a first class BSc (Hons) Psychology degree but also with the British Psychological Society undergraduate prize, both awarded at the same ceremony.
As Carrie explains, she started the degree with great enthusiasm:
In her third year, Carrie worked really hard to make sure she continued getting firsts and started to believe that she might be capable of getting a first overall. It was her sheer drive that made her a top student. She continues:
Towards the end of her degree, Carrie started working with children with autism and developed an interest in educational psychology. Now she is working as a teaching assistant with a child with special educational needs.It is her hope to work within educational psychology in the future.
