The trips and visits that run in psychology vary each year. In the past we have set up:

  • Trips to London have included visits to the Natural History Museum, seeing a psychology related show, taking part in a session with a trained therapist for people with arachnophobia and visiting the Freud Museum
  • Various conferences, often in Birmingham or London, with practicing psychologists and researchers that you may learn about
  • Trips to Auschwitz to hear from a Holocaust survivor and visit the various museums
  • The Behind Bars Conference learning about criminality and taking part in mini-workshops with ex-offenders
  • Visits from a practicing psychologist to take part in their current piece of research as a real participant 

Psychology LIVE! March 2020

On Monday 9 March, 48 Psychology students attended a "Psychology LIVE!" conference at Disneyland Paris. 3 interactive lectures were delivered by 3 specialists in the following fields; Forensic & Criminological Psychology, Cognitive Psychology and Clinical Hypnosis, where the experts demonstrated the valuable applications psychological research has to today's society. This led into a Q&A session for students to find out more about their research areas as well as career pathways into such professions. The students then had the opportunity to get hands on and complete 6 experiments around the Disneyland park, for which they wrote up their findings in the style of a scientific report. All students found this to be an invaluable experience, having left with broadened knowledge and new-found interests in topic areas beyond the teaching spec.
