General Research Seminars

The Department of Psychology hosts a research seminar series in which we invite academics from other institutions to visit us and share their research. These seminars typically run on a Wednesday afternoon.

If you’re a student, member of staff or even a visitor to Edge Hill, you are very welcome to attend. All we ask is that you confirm your attendance to any given seminar with our Admin Team at PsychologyAdmin@edgehill.ac.uk prior to the event.

Seminars usually take place in the Law and Psychology building in room LP 2.49 (top floor). The building is fully accessible and has a lift for access. For more details, please access our “How to find us” page or our campus map (we are building 7 on the map).
