Research Participation

The Department of Psychology offers students and staff from across the University opportunities to participate in research projects.

There are two ways in which you can participate in research:

  1. Students studying PSY1117: Real World Psychology must complete studies for course credit.
  2. Everyone else (e.g., non-Psychology students, Psychology students in years 2 and 3, academic staff, members of the general public) can participate in research for a small payment.

All studies are ethically approved and you will receive information about each prior to signing up. The data collected in each study is kept confidential and anonymous and only used for research purposes.

You can view some of the previous research studies here.

In order to take part in research, you need to register with the Psychology Research Participation System (Edge Hill SONA-Systems). This contains information about the research projects and allows you to sign-up to take part in these projects.
