Psychology LIVE! Student Conference Event for KS4 and 5 at Disneyland® Paris

Event Dates:

Monday 7th March 2022

Monday 6th March 2023

Psychology LIVE! is the best possible way to spend time outside the classroom whilst bringing Psychology studies to life. This immersive 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. Through their real-life experiences our speakers will help the students understand how psychology is applied in the real world such as the contribution of psychology to individual, social and cultural diversity, and ultimately to a successful society. There will be the opportunity to ask questions of the industry practitioners and learn about careers associated with the subject during the interactive question and answer sessions.

While enjoying and being immersed in the Disneyland® Parks, the Park Challenges encourage students to take a step back and look at the resort from a scientific perspective. Students are given simple experiments to complete which allow them to develop arguments and draw conclusions about how psychological principles/theories are applied across the resort in order to stimulate specific behaviours and responses.

Expert's comment

"I'm glad that the presentation was well received, and that students managed to learn something as well as gain a sense of what it's like working as a forensic psychologist.!

Michelle Fletcher, Clinical Psychologist


What You Say

Brilliant Psychology conference!  Walbottle Campus

Michelle Fletcher was the best, the students loved her. They felt they had a clear insight into her role and her field. Her presentation was engaging with real life examples, she clearly broke down how she carries out clinical assessments and linked this back to relevant examples.   Bacons College

Another excellent trip thanks to EST. This is the third year that we have done the trip and every time EST deliver in terms of making it easy to organise the trip and particularly when in the resort, where they are always available to assist when needed. Staff are enthusiastic and really welcoming. We will be returning again next year!   Garforth Academy

We definitely want to come back next year. Your trip represented better value for money than the rival company as the pupils had one more day in the park.  Churchdown School Academy

EST were great at every stage as always - the booking process was easy and (My Tour Manager)It's a really great tool - no real obvious improvements to make - efficient. The conference was very good (as it always is) and gave the students some 'real life' insight into the psychology field. They enjoyed it very much. Garforth Academy​
