Psychology Live! Educational Psychology Conference

Psychology Live! is the best possible way to spend time outside the classroom whilst bringing Psychology studies to life. This unmissable event gives students the opportunity to meet experts face to face and provide them with all the inspiration they need for their exams including memorable examples and case studies.

Speakers will present the most current issues with presentations linked to key topics covered in the AQA, OCR and Edexcel A Level curriculum. Throughout the course of the weekend your learners will cover the fundamentals of the Psychology curriculum at KS4 and KS5, meaning the event perfectly complements classroom learning. 

Our educational conferences packages at Disneyland Paris are the best value you’ll find anywhere.

We include group travel insurance as part of our package and unlike other tour operators, we won’t charge any supplements for regional pick-ups when you travel by coach.
