In the Psychologists' Chair

Inside the Psychologists' Chair

Would you like to know more about why we think, feel and act the way we do. Have you ever considered studying psychology? NCI, in association with The Irish Times, are launching a new series of free, lunchtime public seminars on the many different areas of psychology. Leading experts will give entertaining and informative talks on some of the dazzling and the darker aspects of the human condition.

These talks are fascinating in themselves but they will also give you an opportunity to get a taste of some of the things you might discover as a student of psychology.

All talks take place from 1-2 pm at our campus in Mayor Street. These are free to attend but be sure to book in to register a place.
