Annual Transition Year Event

SoAP TY Event 2020

School of Applied Psychology TY Event 2020

Please note: The School of Applied Psychology TY programme will run on the 10th & 11th March 2021 as an ONLINE ONLY event this year. If restrictions are relaxed, there is a slight chance of some activities happening on campus and in the School of Applied Psychology

In March 2020, 40 transition year students spent three days with the School of Applied Psychology as part of our annual transition year programme. Now in its fourth year, this has become one of the most sought-after TY experiences for students considering a career in Applied Psychology.

During their intensive few days, students meet our lecturing staff and postgraduates, getting to see and experience cognitive testing, EEG, and exploring human computer interaction. They are introduced to the wider campus on a guided tour of UCC and the Boole Library and they engage with the UCC Study Skills Centre and student members of the Applied Psychology Society.

The TY initiative aims to give students a taste of both the BA Applied Psychology (CK120) and the new BA Applied Psychology & Computing (CK121), open their minds as to the kind of careers they might like to pursue, and help them to make an informed decision when choosing their third level programme.

The Programme Coordinator is Veronica Forde who can be contacted on
