UCC Psychology Virtual Workshops

UCC Psychology Virtual Workshops

In March, three transition year students attended the TY online programme with the UCC School of Applied Psychology. This event has become one of the most sought-after TY experiences for students considering a career in Applied Psychology. Unfortunately demand far exceeded the places available so not all interested students were offered a place.

During their intensive few days, the students met lecturing staff and postgraduates, getting to see and experience Psychology in a virtual college setting.

The TY initiative aims to give students a taste of both the BA Applied Psychology (CK120) and the new BA Applied Psychology & Computing (CK121), open their minds as to the kind of careers they might like to pursue, and help them to make an informed decision when choosing their third level programme.

What our TYs students said about the event:

"I thought it was a very good well organised event. It was very cool how it was more interactive and we all worked on projects together with real research we conducted ourselves. I think it would've been much better if we could've been there in person but of course given the circumstances that wasn't possible. I really enjoyed this event! Would recommend."

"It was brilliant, I really enjoyed the poster design at the end and some of the talks. There were a couple of technical issues but that was kind of expected, other than that it was great."

"I really enjoyed this course. I learned quite a lot of things that I hadn’t really thought about before. I found it all very interesting. All of the teachers and students involved were very helpful and nice."
