The Perfect Stepping Stone to Further Study in Psychology

Sarah Glynn is excited by the prospect of continuing her studies in a field which will challenge her with new discoveries and theories. For her, the broad range of topics and areas covered in the Postgraduate Certificate in Psychology at PCI College was the perfect stepping stone to her HDip at NUI Galway.

Sarah Glynn has always had a keen interest in Psychology, a fact that was confirmed when she took a number of Psychology modules in her Bachelor of Education degree.  Sarah, who is from Galway, studied at Mary Immaculate College in Limerick and has since taught as a primary school teacher in both France and Ireland.

“I wanted to apply for the Higher Diploma Psychology course in NUI Galway. However I realised the competition and limited places for would make it rather difficult to attain a place. It was necessary to have some grounding in the subject first. I researched a number of part time certificate psychology courses in Dublin and PCI was by far the obvious choice. The small classes and support received were second to none”.

Sarah says she thoroughly enjoyed the course. “Dr. Derek Dorris always kept us engaged and actively participating. He taught us rather than lectured us and this is one aspect of this course that I particularly appreciated. This is something you will not get at a big University.  I met some great and interesting people on this course, who came from a number of different disciplines and backgrounds and this too enriched my experience at PCI College”.

“You won’t find a better course with a more enthusiastic educator. Dr. Derek Dorris and the team at PCI College make this a wonderful, worthwhile learning experience.  This course covers a broad range of topics and areas in psychology and is the perfect stepping stone to further study in psychology.  I found the experience and the standard of the college exceptional”.

“I am now in my first year of the Higher Diploma in Psychology at NUI Galway. It was great to secure my place and I felt all the time and effort pursing this challenging subject had paid off. I feel I am definitely at an advantage to any of my peers who do not have this grounding in psychology.  My time at PCI College definitely enhanced my interest in the subject. I am excited by the prospect of continuing in a field which will challenge me with new discoveries and theories, where my education will never be considered to be completed and one I find hugely interesting and rewarding”.
