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.


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 in October 2022. For more information, please click here and here.


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 taster day will take place on 29th March 2023. More information will be available in the spring term!
