Victoria Students' Psychology Society
The Victoria Students’ Psychology Society allows psychology students to get to know their peers and lecturers outside of the classroom environment.
Victoria Students’ Psychology Society (PSYC Society) was originally established in 2009. The PSYC Society is run by a combined group of 1st, 2nd, 3rd year and postgraduate students studying psychology. PSYC Society is a Victoria University Wellington Students’ Association (VUWSA) affiliated club.
PSYC Society aims to provide a forum for students of psychology at Victoria to get to know their classmates, students of all levels and staff within the School of Psychology.
PSYC Society will host social events that students and staff of the School alike, can attend.
Why become a member? PSYC Society membership will provide you with the opportunity to meet other like-minded students of all levels taking psychology. Becoming a member entitles you to attend all PSYC Society events at a special, cheaper price.
PSYC Society will offer a number of events like the annual Quiz Night, talks by guest lecturers, movie nights and other social events to bring students and staff together. Non-members are able to attend events; however, they may be charged an entry fee payable at the door.
