Exploring Psychology

We run a number of psychology events throughout the year for A-level students interested in studying Psychology at university. Please see below for further details.


Psychology Taster Day

At our annual taster day, Year 12 students can learn about what it’s like to study Psychology here at Royal Holloway.

Hear keynote lectures, take part in real psychological studies, and bust some of the myths about studying Psychology.

Our next Psychology Taster Day event will take place on Wednesday 1st April, 2020. Save the date!

Registration for this event will open in January 2020, so check back here for details.


Schools Lecture Evening

We host an annual Lecture Evening specifically for schools and colleges, where we discuss hot topics in Psychology. The event will include short taster lectures from two of our academics within our department and offer students an opportunity to ask questions to some of our current students about studying psychology at university.

Our next lecture evening will take place on Wednesday 9th October, 2019 at 6-7:30pm in the Shilling Building on campus. Book your ticket and read more about this year's lecture here.
