If you missed out last year’s trips to IMH, SAAC, or Prison visits, fret not, as we will be bringing them all back this year! Making a return to our long list of events for you is InspirePsych, where we invite speakers to talk about psychology topics, of which some are not taught in our modules. Also, be sure to check out this year’s Psychology Appreciation Week (PAW), as we will be distributing welfare packs and having various activities such as Wear-Your-Psych-Shirt day and lucky draw.

11th Executive Committee President’s Message

Welcome to the official website for NUS Psychology Society!

Psychology – the scientific study of the human mind

The Psychology Society is a student-led body that acts as bridge between Psychology majors, Psychology major alumnus, the Psychology Department as well as various external organisations. It aims to promote Psychology not just to Psychology students but for anyone and everyone who has an interest in Psychology. It also aims to promote the welfare of current members of Psychology society and to create a tight-knit group of like-minded individuals.

This year, we plan to bring back everything we love from last year such as the popular Prison tours, IMH tours and Lab tours for anyone interested in what we really do (besides reading your mind of course). We’ve also lined up a series of academic talks for you to be more exposed and informed on the career prospects in the field of Psychology. For students who wish to give back to society (and not our own), we’ve still got volunteer opportunities with organizations such as the National Kidney Foundation (NKF) and the Institute of Mental Health (IMH). For those of you still not drawn in by our extensive list of benefits, we’re still having our Psychology Appreciation Week (PAW) which includes Wear-Your-Psych-Shirt Day, Welfare Pack Distributions and Appreciation Letters to Staff and more!

Of course, you must first be a member if you are wish to be informed and to have priority for these events. It’s simple! Send an email to nuspsyche@gmail.com indicating your interest to be a member and for just $5 you get a lifetime membership! Our pre-requisites, being a Psychology society, is that you must have a mind! Otherwise, we gladly welcome all NUS students, regardless of their major, into the Society, so we hope you would join us soon!

For anyone who feels that they can and they wish to contribute to the society in one way or another, let us know by sending an email to nuspsyche@gmail.com. We are always looking for new members, event helpers, and even ideas! Thank you for your continued support in Psychology society and we wish everyone the best for the year ahead of us!

Welcome to the official website for NUS Psychology Society!

The society is a student-led body that acts as a bridge between students in FASS studying Psychology, Psychology major alumnus, the Psychology Department as well as various external organisations. Its goal is to foster a cohesive community with an interest in all things pertaining to the broad field of Psychology. The Society not only organises events such as talks and tours related to Psychology, but also strives to promote the welfare of our members.

This year, Psychology Appreciation Week (PAW) makes its return once in each semester. Comprising Wear-Your-Psych-Shirt Day, Welfare Pack Distributions and Appreciation Letters to Staff, PAW is the period to show pride and gratitude for the major that we love and the people in them. Prison tours, IMH tours and Lab tours will also be lined up for those who are interested in what goes on behind closed doors. Talks and seminars this year are also coming back, only bigger and better. Apart from the usual annual Academic Talks, NUS Psychology Society is also working with the Duke-NUS Cognitive Neuroscience Lab to organise specialised topical talks relating to cognitive neuroscience and – hold your breath – more internship opportunities! With so many activities to look forward to, do keep a look out on this space and our Facebook page for registration details.

Of course, only members will have priority access to these events. The good news is that if you’re not a member, all you need to do is send an email to nuspsyche@gmail.com requesting for membership at your convenience and a lifetime membership that entails priority access to events, first-hand information about internships and volunteering opportunities, and an invitation to attend the Annual General Meeting is yours for only $5! We gladly welcome all NUS students, regardless of their major, into the Society, so we hope you would join us soon!

Joining us as a member automatically places you in our mailing list. Unfortunately, if you are not a member, in light of the new Personal Data Protection Act, we are unable to send information of events without your prior consent. If you are interested in receiving information regarding volunteer opportunities, internships and other Psychology related events, please send an email to nuspsyche@gmail.com to indicate your permission to subscribe to our mailing list.

If you’re thinking of spending your time in a meaningful way during your university life, members are welcome to volunteer at our events with organisations we have partnerships with such as the National Kidney Foundation (NKF) and the Institute of Mental Health (IMH). We will also be recruiting committee members for Psychology Camp from December 2015 to February 2016, so stay tuned for that!
