50 years of Psychology teaching at UEL

A celebration day has been held at the University of East London's Stratford campus today (Friday 1 June), with 350 guests invited to attend a programme of events to commemorate 50 years of psychology at UEL and its predecessor institutions.

The day is also intended to mark the British Psychological Society Education Board’s Lifetime Achievement Award for 2011 being made to UEL’s Emeritus Professor John Radford

In 1962, Glenys Turner, began teaching psychology in east London to four students who were studying for a General Degree. A few years later, in the same institution, a Department of Psychology was established, led by John Radford, and a psychology degree pathway developed.  That department is now the University of East London’s School of Psychology, with currently over 2000 students and over 80 academic staff.

Other events and activities are planned during 2012 and you invited to contact UEL by email if you would like more information.
