London Psychology Residential 2022

London Psychology Residential

Last week, 25 Psychology students visited London on a three day residential trip. Students were able to attend several museums during their visit including Freud Museum, The Natural History Museum and The British Science Museum. At the Freud Museum they were able to obtain a rare glimpse into the life and thoughts of Sigmund Freud. 

Students were able to immerse themselves on the after dark Jack the Ripper tour on their first day. The walking tour around the streets of East London, covered the facts and conspiracies surrounding the identity of Jack the Ripper, where he committed his murders, how he carried them out and the psychology behind his actions. 

Students also visited The Royal Courts of Justice where they had the opportunity to take part in a mock murder trial. They were allocated roles and played out the trial in a real courtroom. There was some time for them to explore more of London as well, visiting Covent Garden and Buckingham Palace. 

Psychology Teacher Carolyn Powell said following the residential:

The students had a fantastic enriching experience being able to see how psychology can be applied beyond the classroom. They represented the college brilliantly and we are so proud of them all.
