 "Attending the BPS conference is a must for psychology students.  You have the opportunity to speak to a great deal of people in various fields of psychology, attend talks in areas that you may not necessarily study a great deal on your course, get great advice on careers and make loads of contacts with like-minded people.  Overall I felt a great sense of pride to be a part of the BPS, and the conference made me think "this is what it's all about".  If you love psychology, you will love the BPS conference"
