Our events

Events and seminars

Our department runs a range of activities and events throughout the year, from Welcome Week at the start of the academic year, through to our regular research seminar series.

Research seminars

Our research seminar series is held during term time. In these seminars academics from Essex and other Psychology departments present and discuss their latest research. You don't need to be a psychologist to attend - we welcome anyone from the university who has an interest in the area being discussed.
