Psychology Open Afternoon

You are invited to join us on-campus and experience what it is like to be a Psychology student at Buckingham!

What will I do?

  • Meet current students and staff to discuss experiences and ask any questions you may have
  • Experience a taster with a themed tutorial
  • Tour our beautiful Buckingham campus and see our accommodation (optional)

What will I learn about?

  • How our BPS accredited Psychology degree develops the knowledge and skills needed for a successful, psychology-based career
  • Our flexible study options, including two entry points and how you can finish your degree in as little as two years
  • Details of our programmes, work experience, careers, and finance information throughout the School of Psychology presentation

Themed taster session

Experience what it is like to be a Psychology student during the themed tutorial: ‘Play in Adulthood’.

Adults are playing more often and in more diverse ways than ever. With record attendance at game conventions, the huge success of escape rooms, and the demographics for video and board games shifting from children to people in their 20s, 30s and beyond, this tutorial questions: are we in the Golden age of play for adults?

But what is it doing for us? We will explore if obsessive play can negatively affect us, if it provides an escape from our problems, and if it benefits our work, mental health and relationships.
