This week our A Level Psychology department had the pleasure of taking our students to Lancaster University.

They took part in labs investigating eye tracking and perception, brain activity related to visual hallucinations and a demonstration of research using police body cam footage, to investigate police-citizen interactions. They also had a chance to look around the ‘baby labs’ where research is done into developmental psychology. A fantastic time was had by all, and students learnt a lot about conducting research. A huge thanks to the brilliant staff and student ambassadors at Lancaster University!

Are you intrigued by what causes our behaviour and what makes us who we are? A Level Psychology is a two year course which will give you the opportunity to look at some of the explanations psychologists use to understand human behaviour and experiences. Students who enjoy and successfully complete this subject typically progress onto a range of degree courses at university including Psychology, Criminology and related subjects.
