School Links

The School of Psychology works to develop collaboration with local schools and colleges. In particular, it has established links with those schools that offer A-Level Psychology.

White Water Writers White Water Writers enables groups of up to ten writers to write and publish their own novel within five days. Writers are given an idea for a story on a single side of A4. They take the idea, develop it, draft it, proof it, refine it and polish it. After four and a half days – they publish it.
