Students gain valuable employment skills during their degree


The research internship scheme in the Department of Psychology provides funded opportunities each year for the second year students on our BSc (Hons) programmes.

The successful applicants have the opportunity to work alongside members of the academic staff in order to gain the experience of being part of a professional research team. They primarily work in the data collection stage of a research project, where they are responsible for administering research procedures to participants, and ensuring the accurate collection of data. Engagement in this scheme enriches the students’ experience of learning research methods in psychology, and enhances the experience they can include on their CVs when seeking employment after graduation.

“The Psychology department at Edge Hill will provide you with tools that you will need to pursue your ambitions. There is no better time to start using those tools than now!”
