Develop a pre-university research project in Psychology
Want to learn more about your own human mind and others? Psychology is an academic subject not often taught in typical high schools, but as it is picking up pace, many students are becoming more and more intrigued and interested in the world of psychology. Psychology influences every part of our lives, from football matches and strategy to political elections and more.
The Oxbridge Online Research Programme will allow you to dive into the world of psychology through the expert teaching of behavioural genetics, cognitive psychology, and more. If you’re intrigued by the human mind and want to leave Immerse with a greater understanding of your own mind and others, then this course will be of interest to you.
What is the Oxbridge Online Research Programme?
The Oxbridge Online Research Programme (‘OORP’) is designed for students who want to enhance their personal research and study skills in preparation for university, whilst also developing deeper knowledge in their chosen field.
Led by your personal tutor, you will undertake a research project assessed at university-level and receive regular 1:1 supervisions from an expert academic from Oxford or Cambridge University.
This course is ideal for students wanting to gain invaluable experience for writing a dissertation or thesis at university, whilst also familiarising themselves with the demands of an Oxbridge degree. Alternatively, this is a fantastic opportunity to experience a subject you have never studied before!
I have participated in the Cambridge Immerse programme in 2018 in the 13-15 age category and I enjoyed it immensely. I wanted to do this again this year and join the 16-18 age category however, due to the Covid-19 crisis, I could not do so this year. Therefore, I decided to look into what other options I could choose instead this year. I chose the Oxbridge Online Research Programme for Psychology as it was an in depth 1:1 course which I thought was a great way to do online learning.
