One of our students Nate Smulska has been selected as the winner of the Eduqas AS/A Level Psychology Research Poster Challenge.
The Eduqas poster competition was used as part of WREP week in June 2023. It was to boost students’ research communication skills. Psychology students across the UK were invited to create academic posters to showcase their research ideas. The poster had to explain what the student’s psychological research idea was, how the research could be conducted and why they think it would be a valuable addition to psychology. Every entry was excellent and the Psychology subject team had a very challenging time selecting a winner. Nate and Bilborough College won £500 worth of prize vouchers each. Below are the judges comments:
Eduqas Psychology Subject Officer Rhiannon Murray commented:
“Nate’s entry was considered to be a well-thought through methodology for an under researched, yet important area of psychology. Although much is known about some eating disorders, it seems clear that we have much more to learn about the impact of gym culture (which encompasses a supposedly healthy activity) and its potential negative impact on psychological wellbeing.”
