Departmental/AcademicJoin This Group
We are here to make your time studying Psychology in Sheffield as fun and action packed as possible. Whether that's by guiding you academically, providing opportunities to volunteer, improving your teamwork skills in our sports teams, or - at the top of the list - by hosting the best socials, that are sure to be unforgettable! Unfortunately, due to COVID-19 we are limited to what we can do, but we have a lot of events in their planning stage. Which include guest speakers, academic events and night's out with the odd Psychology zoom social thrown in the mix! The biggest event of the year, however, is our trip abroad - in 2020 we planned to whisk our members off to Amsterdam! It's always a big success, and we are already in the process of planning the next big trip of 2020/2021 to Budapest!
If Sport is more your thing, then keep your eyes peeled for our 2020/21 football teams which play in the universities Intra Mural league each week. On top of all this is our annual *Psychology Ball* - the perfect opportunity to dig out your glad rags, eat like the royal and have a dance with your friends and lecturers.
Awards and Achievements: In 2012, the Psychology Society was nominated for Best Departmental Society at the Academic Awards, and Anna Summersall (Former President) received a nomination for Outstanding Contribution to Societies at the Activities Awards! We're aiming to win some awards this year too, so keep your eyes peeled!
We're a caring bunch here at PsySoc so we also support local charities with fundraising through Sheffield RAG and also individually.

It can be really rewarding as well as being a great way to gain experience and invaluable skills for your future career.
