Peer support

Getting support from your fellow students


PsychPALS is a student-run peer assisted learning scheme that aids in facilitating learning for first- and second-year students taking a Psychology course. Trained PsychPALS volunteers run two weekly drop-in sessions where you will be encouraged to engage with other students in fun activities aimed to help you acquire academic skills (such as essay writing, tutorial readings and exam revision tips) and consolidate your psychology knowledge.

Our sessions are completely free and optional; just drop by and we’ll be more than happy to help you!
