Event details

Year 12 / first year college students are invited to attend our annual Psychology masterclass, which will cover the highly topical themes of online gaming, gambling and addiction.

Professor Mark Griffiths, an internationally-renowned expert in this field, will lead the event, which will enhance and enrich A-level psychology studies, especially those parts of the syllabus focussing on addiction.

Introduced by Phil Banyard, a member of the Psychology Education Board of the British Psychology Society, this masterclass will appeal to A-level psychology students or those considering psychology in further or higher education.

Students are welcome to attend this event on their own or accompanied with a teacher and school or college group.
