About the event

Description

For students about to start DE200 in October.

This weekend is designed for students moving into the core second-level module DE200. Given that most people will have had at least a year between DE100/D120 and DE200, this course provides a reminder of DE100 and a primer for DE200, as it examines how the material you have previously covered is valuable in the context of DE200. The content will also help prepare you for the new methods and theories that you will encounter in DE200 and will be equally relevant to students going via DD210, E219 or D241.

There will be eight lectures, some focused on specific topics and some with a broader focus. We can't cover every nook and cranny of DE200, but we aim to give you an understanding of the structure and the broad theoretical approaches you will encounter.

What does the weekend offer?

This weekend offers a full programme of eight talks, running from Friday evening to teatime on Sunday.  Attendees arrive on Friday afternoon/evening, with dinner served 6pm.  The weekend finishes at 3.30pm on Sunday.

As well as providing an introduction to and overview of the course, it will be an ideal opportunity to meet with other students who are about to start DE200 at the same time as you, and also to talk to some of those involved in producing and teaching the course, who will be tutoring on the weekend. The weekend is being held in parallel with other events for psychology courses so there is likely also to be the chance to meet and talk with students who have already studied DE200 and get some first-hand opinions and tips from them.

The weekend is not all hard work  and there will be ample opportunity to relax and socialise with other students in the evenings should you choose to.

What to expect

The lectures are conducted in management conference seminar rooms within the University campus, and you will have been provided with a timetable of talks and lecture notes before you arrive.

You can choose how you spend your time. If you book the residential package then you will have a very comfortable ensuite room in management conference facilities complete with bedding, towels, a hairdryer, coffee-making facilities and desk. Wifi is also included.

The full cost is inclusive of all meals and accommodation. There are no extra costs involved (except for drinks at the bar!). As well as your room and all meals this includes refreshments at break times, extensive handouts which are only available to attendees, coverage of key course material, and a welcome drink on Friday night. Non-residential places are available for a reduction, and the same breakfast, lunch, dinner and all tea/coffee/snack breaks during the day are still included.

The welcome drinks and psychology book stall are both excellent places to meet other students. All students and staff wear name badges, so it is easy to find somebody to help if you have any questions. You can enjoy your meals with a group of students in the comfortable dining room. The food is fresh, healthy buffet style catering, and there is something to entice everyone.

Finally, whilst most students leave exhausted from the learning and socialising, they comment that it is such a worthwhile weekend, and we see many of them each year as they progress their studies!

Free places

We will be offering some free places on this weekend event. This offer is only open to OUPS members and the students will have to pay their own travel expenses. Students can only apply if they have not received a free place from us previously. The applicant will need to be able to demonstrate that they have financial hardship and will need to provide proof of current receipt of benefits (such as a scan/photo of the front page of the pay award letter, giving name, address and the date of the award)  or evidence of low income (for example a screen shot of a bank statement showing salary and carers allowance) as well as a covering letter with a short personal statement of no more than 500 words.

Applications should be made before 26th July and we will inform applicants if they have been successful the following week. Please email your applications to info@oups.org.uk. Any queries should be addressed to info@oups.org.uk
