Final year! Final year?
This year there will be no lecture, but instead, there will be a discussion. On what you'd ask?
With an expert panel of educators in Psychology, we will aim to explore how our education has shaped us.
Questions such as: What does psychology means to you now, that you studied it for four years? What was your favourite subject and why?
What would you like to have more if you could start again? Do you feel you become equal to your teachers? will be asked. And more!
Our educators (Eoin O'Sullivan, Christine Caldwell, Peter Hancock and Roger Watt) and our peers will be there to cheerfully reflect on the past four years and we ask all students and staff to come and join the discussion!
If you feel like you have a question to ask, but would rather do it anonymously, please email us in firstname.lastname@example.org!
The committee will consist of the following individuals; to talk to any of the members please email email@example.com.
