We run a national Psychology competition for schools, enabling Year 12 students to pit their psychology skills against pupils from across the UK.
To enter the competition, students answer the competition question with a two-minute video (submitted before the event) and a corresponding poster (to be presented at the on-campus event).
Students may want to look at findings from psychological studies, think about the implications of a psychological theory, or approach it completely differently. It’s an opportunity for you to showcase your understanding of Psychology.
The competition question
How can psychology be used to understand the misinformation epidemic?
