We hope it will be a busy but exciting year. Fourth year is a great opportunity for all our students, both in the individual thesis and group thesis streams, to learn more about psychology and get prepared for the next step in your lives, whether that is work or further study (not that study isn't work too!). The key to getting the most out of this year is to be organised and work on your thesis and coursework continually throughout the year. We hope that you will find the following information useful, and look forward to meeting you over the course of the year.
Updated handbooks for both individual (PSYC4071) and group (PSYC4091) thesis students will be available for download from this page in February - see the files under "Fourth Year" to the right.
The School of Psychology hosts seminars on Friday afternoons. Fourth year students are welcome to attend these seminars as they provide a great opportunity to learn more broadly about psychology, and to interact with other members of the school. Upcoming seminars will be listed on this page, and also on our main homepage.
The School of Psychology will run a series of brown bag lunches for fourth year students in 2014. These lunches will cover a variety of topics, ranging from sessions useful for your study in fourth year (Managing your supervisor, Building resilience, Introduction to Eprime/Qualtrix) through to sessions designed to assist you in thinking about your future in psychology (e.g., What’s it like to be a clinical psychologist, Applying for the professional programs).
Space in these sessions is limited and students will be allocated space on a first come, first served basis.
The Annual Fourth Year Conference will be held on Saturday, 20th September 2014, from 8.30am - 5.30pm. All students enrolled in the individual thesis (PSYC4070 or PSYC4071) are required to present a short paper on their thesis topic at the Conference.
In all, there will be some 140 presentations throughout the day. Presentations will be grouped into streams reflecting the content of individual theses. The different streams will run concurrently in several different rooms, and the audience will be free to move about between streams throughout the day.
