"PsyPAG was by far one of the best conferences I have attended as a postgraduate researcher. I met some really great people at PsyPAG who have now become great friends and even potential research collaborators for in the future. It was great to hear and share similar stories about the struggles of PhD life and realising you are not alone in your experience of academia. Already can’t wait to attend PsyPAG 2020!."

"PsyPAG was the first psychology conference I’d attended as PhD Student and the first conference I’d attended without anyone else from my department. But my no means did I feel alone – I met so many people with similar interests to me and I got to present my poster in a really supportive environment where people asked me lots of really helpful questions! PsyPAG conference has felt like being part of a community of aspiring early career psychologists."
