Intrigued by or studying Psychology? The PsychSoc is a society for all like-minded individuals, catering to both your social and intellectual interests with additional academic and personal support. To stay updated like us on Facebook “Aberdeen University Psychology Society” and follow us @abdnpsychsoc on Twitter and Instagram.
The School of Psychology will be running a Peer Assisted Learning (PAL) scheme for psychology students at Aberdeen. The aim of PAL is to enhance the formal teaching you get from lectures, tutorials and practicals with help from other students at a higher level. PAL sessions take place in F1 for Level 3, and F23 for Level 1 & 2, William Guild. This service is optional.
We've made a very short poll to gather your feedback. We want to know how satisfied you have been with Psych Soc so far, what you expect from us and what we can do better next term, so please take part, it'll take you less than a minute. Click here to take part in our survey. We thank you in advance for your feedback.
Volunteering can be an excellent source of experience and can help you develop transferable skills, regardless of the field. However, if you want to volunteer within a field that would help you advance in your psychology career, here are some volunteering opportunities that might interest you:
However, not everyone has the luxury of donating their time. It is possible to find a paid job that's relevant to your field, at the NHS or CareUK for example. There are some job opportunities that are listed on AUSA that you might find interesting.
Furthermore, the School of Psycology runs the group Psychology Careers and Employability in which you can find advice and opportunities specifically for Psychology careers.
