Psychology Seminar Club

Join our psychology seminar club to debate current concepts and questions in psychology. Sessions are designed to support your A Level Psychology studies and the club is open to students in Year 12 and Year 13.

Back for a second year due to popular demand, Psychology Seminar Club is designed for A Level Psychology Students to get together to debate, discuss and question current concepts in the field of Psychology.

What we hope you will get out of the Psychology Seminar Club:

1. Some examples of what psychologists do in everyday life and how they apply their knowledge of psychology

2. That you will be able to apply this knowledge to your AS and A Level Psychology Studies

3. That you will develop some skills psychologists need like critical thinking and research skills

4. That you will understand what psychology courses Universities offer and how psychology students in universities learn. We are currently piloting the psychology seminar club to find out how useful schools and their students find it.
