Our School of Psychology (Faculty of Social Sciences) is offering an extended, intensive research experience either culminating at the end of or commencing with the beginning of our International Summer School. Students will design and conduct a research project, beginning with research questions through data collection and analyses, using the University's state of the art laboratory facilities, including eye tracking, electrophysiology, and a virtual reality suite. Find out more about the course here.
The programme will expose students to multiple experimental methodologies, developing skills applicable to quantitative and qualitative research, including motivation, initiative, ability to define the problem, design the research, analyse the data, and review after critique to produce a report.
Students will enjoy the benefits of being part of the larger four-week International Summer School cohort, benefiting from an inclusive social programme with other summer school students, whilst enjoying the research seminars, lab work and tutorials whilst other summer school students undertake their taught programme. Students completing the 4 week programme will benefit from University accreditation and receive an official transcript and a certificate of participation at the finale ceremony. Those embarking on the 8 week option - either arriving four-weeks in advance of the ISS in June, or staying for an additional four-weeks after the ISS in August - will work on a unique, independent project with a personal supervisor, and will gain a further certificate of recognition of this intensive research project at the end of the extended programme.
