The BPS Scottish Branch Post-Graduate Research day will take place on 27th August 2019.

This is a great opportunity for you to present your work to an external audience, network with staff and students from across different Scottish Institutions and ask our panel of experts about current issues in psychology.

This event is open to Msc, Msc conversion and PGR psychology students and will be held in Glasgow Caledonian University (GCU) in the centre of Glasgow

Registration is free and the deadline for submissions is the 14th of July.

The event is an opportunity for postgraduate psychology students based in Scotland to network and present their own research, as well as learn about the role of psychology in Scotland (panel discussion) and relevant opportunities (e.g. getting involved with PSYPAG).

It takes the form of mini-PSYPAG conference, whereby delegates present their work and field questions in a friendly, constructive atmosphere.
