Aberystwyth University has been selected to host the 2014 BPS Welsh Branch Annual Student Conference on Saturday 26th of April, 2014. The conference will be the first major event with the British Psychological Society for Aberystwyth since the Psychology Department (also part of the Institute of Human Sciences) received accreditation of its undergraduate degrees in June, 2013.

Director of The Institute of Human Sciences, Professor Kate Bullen said "The Department of Psychology is delighted to be hosting the event and we look forward to welcoming students from across Wales to Aberystwyth in presenting their work. We appreciate the hard work and dedication required to develop and deliver an outstanding undergraduate research project.  The conference will provide an opportunity for students to engage with their peers from across Wales to present and celebrate their achievements.”

Students from Welsh Universities have been invited to present the findings from their final year BSc projects, or MSc research dissertations, in the form of posters or short papers. The location of the conference will be on the Aberystwyth University, Penglais Campus which overlooks the town of Aberystwyth and Cardigan Bay.
