Getting support from your fellow students

Cognitive Science Society

The CogSci Society aims to provide a community for the Cognitive Science students at the university, or just anyone who's interested in cognitive science. We organise events throughout the academic year, such as pub quizzes, socials, film screenings, discussion groups and peer support sessions.

If you want to become a member of the society, email edinburghcogsci@gmail.com, or sign up in person at any of our events.

Membership is only £3 per academic year, and it gives you free access to all our events.

The PPLS Skills Centre

The PPLS Skills Centre is designed to help you do research and write it up. We arrange one-on-one writing appointments for you with PhD tutors in your area, who will spend 50 minutes going over your work in detail and offering guidance. We primarily provide support with writing essays and dissertations, but we also offer appointments on programming, data collection, and statistical analysis. The other primary focus of the Skills Centre is in gathering and developing skills-related learning material, such as guides to writing, examples of student work at all levels, interactive workshops, and other resources for various research techniques.
