Are you a TY student interested in psychology, performance or drama? 

Would you like to learn more about how psychologists understand how people think, behave and feel?

The PsychSlam competition organised by the School of Applied Psychology invites TY student teams to research a topic in Psychology and present their findings in a 6 minute PowerPoint presentation.

All transition year students are invited!

We hope participating students will gain experience in team work, building and describing knowledge and enjoy talking about psychology with other students, researchers and psychologists.
