PRACTICAL PSYCHOLOGY DAY FOR COLLEGE STUDENTS

 

IT sessions, campus tours, Electronic Facial Identification Technique (E-FIT), and baby lab viewings are just some of the varied events that Scunthorpe students will be trying their hands at this week.

 

Around 100 psychology A-level students will be attending a special psychology event tomorrow (Wednesday), which will include a series of demonstrations and subject talks at the University of Lincoln.

 

Pupils from John Leggott College in Scunthorpe will take part in interactive workshops and facility viewings between 12pm and 2.40pm at the university’s Brayford campus.

 

A range of activities related to psychology will be available for the students to try, and the workshops will encompass a selection of interesting practical sessions.

 

The university also hopes that the day will encourage psychology students from the college to consider continuing their studies at the university next year.

 

“The college pupils will be accompanied at the event by current students who will act as mentors for the afternoon, and so they can ask questions that they would perhaps not ask an academic member of staff,” said Emma Jubbs, Marketing and Recruitment Officer for the faculty of Health, Life and Social Sciences.

 

“This is the first time that the Department of Psychology has organised an event for such a specified age range, but we would be happy to run similar events for other schools and colleges in the future.”

 

Anyone interested in organising a future event with the Department of Psychology should contact Emma on (01522) 886286 or email EJubbs@lincoln.ac.uk.
