Lorna Morrow is also available for you to consult about all written work for
the department (including essays, lab reports, etc.), at all levels.
- All courses in level 3 and level 4 (except for critical reviews) are now 10
credits each. Level 3 courses generally run for one semester; but level 4
courses run for half a semester only. Bear that in mind when looking at the
times/days they run.
- Course descriptions/catalogue
The catalogues give only very brief descriptions of courses. Full
details, with aims and objectives for each lecture, are in the course
handbooks. These are also available as PDF files on the web (see the web
- Room/time changes
It is best to check the times and especially the places (rooms) of lectures
online just before the first lecture of the course:
The handbook goes to press before courses start, and room changes do
- Two warnings about our course timetables.
- Level 3 timetable: may be hard for you to understand: lectures
do not follow a regular weekly pattern,
unlike other courses. The printed timetable shows calendar weeks vs. day/time
slots: and to follow a course, you need to scan to find all 13 slots (e.g.
"COG1 .. COG13") for a course, spread across 11 weeks or so.
However the online timetable has a
that can show you how the lectures for a given module fall in terms of the
normal pattern of weekdays
vs. time of day.
- Level 4 timetable: our level 4 courses run for only half a semester each
(5 weeks of 2 hour sessions); so that each course runs either in the first or
second half of the semester.
- Psychology portal (VLE)
You are likely to find useful downloads such as slides from lectures, and
other material, on the department/school "portal" (effectively, a Virtual Learning
Environment). This is at:
You will need a password that works on it, and this will be emailed to you.
(Your login name on the portal is your student ID number with an appended
letter from your name?) I hope this will be arranged
automatically for you, but if not don't hesitate to follow the instructions
on its home page to send an email to get someone to fix it for you.
- Emails and other announcements to the class
e.g. about the reading party, registration classes, etc., frequently do not
apply to visiting students, only to those majoring exclusively in psychology.
Staff making such announcements do not remember that there are a few other
students to consider.
- Email list for visiting students
You should be entered (automatically, perhaps after a delay) on an email
list for visiting students doing one or more courses in psychology.
If you want to contact other students like this you could email directly to
"foreignL3 AT psy.gla.ac.uk" for those doing at least one level 3 course.
"foreignL4 AT psy.gla.ac.uk" for those doing at least one level 4 course.
