The Psychology society welcomes anyone and everyone with an interest in psychology, whether you're studying for a psychology degree or not. All UWL students are free to join the society because we believe it is important to provide support to all students.
The Psychology Society is a place for students to come together for discussions, events and activities regarding mental health and physical health which will be proposed by the members and committee of the Psychology Society; we want to hear your views and perceptions on a range of topics such as anxiety, mental/physical health, the mental and physical demands of coping with day-to-day responsibilities and academic duties, human behaviour, relationships, social problems, scientific discoveries and investigating the mysteries of the human condition.
We feel it is important to welcome all communities to the Psychology Society including the LGBTQ+ community and the BAME (Black Asian Minority Ethnic) community so that the society is inclusive and so that the society is able to provide further support from UWL resources.
The society aims to collaborate with other UWL societies/clubs to increase mental health and physical health awareness and provide support to all students who attend UWL. There are opportunities to engage in activities such as meditation, movement practices, events and fundraising. The Psychology society is a great space to freely explore ideas, no matter their origin or implication, with like-minded individuals in a respectful, forward-thinking environment. We also encourage and support our members by taking a serious interest in mental health hygiene and nurturing holistic wellbeing through group-based movement and meditation activities in some of Ealing and Brentford's greenest parks and outdoor spaces!
"Between stimulus and response, there is a space. In that space is our power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and our freedom."
- Viktor E. Frankl
Important Dates/Regular meet ups or Training:
Students can look forward to celebrating events and activities that support mental health and physical health.
We have no membership fee as we want the Psychology Society to be as open and accessible as possible. Once you've joined, you'll be invited to all our events as well as our group chat on WhatsApp! By joining, you'll instantly have the opportunity to network, meet like-minded people, and get more involved in the university experience and campus culture.
For Psychology students, the Psychology Society is a wonderful place to network, share support, and make lasting professional connections in the field. Students who are new to UWL, as well as those in Level 4 and Level 5 can also receive guidance from our Year 3 students, who are happy to impart the knowledge they've gained throughout their course and time at UWL. Level 6 students can also advertise their Dissertation studies to the group to recruit participants and foster mutually beneficial relationships across all levels of study :)
