Please note, this is an enrichment course, not part of a students’ main programme of study.
Psychology students who join this specialist enrichment will have the opportunity to work with Dr Liz Blagrove from the University of Warwick. This opportunity gives students the chance to investigate the science behind Psychology. In the first instance, students will replicate one of Dr Blagrove’s own studies; then students will develop their own research project. This enrichment leads to an Extended Project Qualification (EPQ), giving students the chance to boost their university application with extra UCAS points.
July 2018 – April 2019.
One period per week, and termly visits to the University of Warwick.
Students are asked to contribute travel costs to Warwick.
