At the School of Psychology we offer a wide range of taster sessions and education liaison activities for prospective students. All our taster sessions are free to attend and you can choose from a variety of subject talks and workshops or take part in lab tours and equipment demonstrations.
These demonstrations take place in the labs as they make use of specialist equipment (e.g. electroencephalogram (EEG), heart rate and skin conductance monitors).
Visitors can take a tour of the labs, take part in cognitive or perception tasks as well as try the driving simulator.
Our ethos is to create strong links with local educational establishments and the wider community. We currently work in partnerships with local colleges and sixth forms to give local students a taste of what it is like to study psychology and frequently host schools for shorter visits to our labs.
On request we can also run specific events designed for parents, teachers and advisers. Activities can take place at the Luton Campus or at the institutions, depending on the preferences and practical considerations.
All enquiries should be directed to Andy Green or Kristy Horton (School of Psychology Taster Session & Education Liaison Co-ordinators).
Note: Open Days are not part of Education Liaison. All communication regarding Enquirer and Applicant days should be directed to Paul Cavendish.
