The Young Psychologist Programme takes students aged 15-18 on an immersive exploration through the inner workings of the human mind. You will take part in a series of interactive simulations, seminars and Q&A sessions under the guidance of successful psychologists from some of the profession’s most interesting areas: clinical, forensic, business and sports psychology.
The programme includes an opportunity for you to understand the psychological state of a criminal about to stand trial and use cognitive behavioural therapy to treat patients*.
The programme takes place over two days – Saturday dedicated to "Clinical & Business Psychology" and Sunday to "Forensic & Sports Psychology". You can choose to attend either one or both days.
You can also choose to attend this programme EITHER in-person (at UCL) OR live online (via our state-of-the-art, interactive online platform).
Attendance will give you an edge over other aspiring psychologists in the race for the best jobs and a ‘super-curricular’ experience to add to your UCAS application.
*Patients will be played by actors. Mental health data is fictionalised but based on the real experiences of our professional psychologists
