The science of procrastination
A free virtual taster session for Year 12, A Level
This session is now full.
When: Wednesday 31 March 2021, 4:15pm - 5:35pm
Places available: 100
Procrastination is a common problem that is seemingly harmless – or is it? A growing evidence base suggests that putting off important tasks, like writing that term paper or going to the gym, may have some very unhealthy consequences. Join Dr Fuschia Sirois for this fascinating masterclass, as she critically reviews the scientific evidence on the potential health consequences of procrastination and the various research methods that have been used to suggest a link between procrastination and health-related outcomes. There will be plenty of opportunities to chat to Fuschia, and get lots of your questions answered.
To round off the taster session, there will be a chance for you to find out more about being a psychology student at the University of Sheffield, as you take part in a Q&A. You will have the chance to talk to some of our current undergraduate students, and a member of our admissions team, who will all be on hand to answer any queries you might have about studying psychology at university.
Please note: This session is a repeat of the one that took place in December 2020.
