This optional study-unit will combine experiential learning with active reflection on that learning. The aim of this study-unit is to facilitate student participation in a number of meetings within University structures and help students develop interpersonal and group skills. 

Students can register for PSY2650 as an extra study-unit; this is applicable for students following courses where all study-units are compulsory. Other students can opt for this unit as an optional study-unit. Details are available online. [PDF]

To register for PSY2650 students are expected to: 
  • be currently student representatives or intending to contest the student representatives elections during the current academic year
  • attend the Board Meetings
  • attend the 3 Seminars which are held during the year.
Students are strongly encouraged to register for this study-unit as such training will enable participants to be better and more effective representatives of fellow students.

This study-unit will not be on offer during the current academic year 2018/19.
