Psychologists Visit to Twycross

Twycross Zoo proves to be the perfect place to research behaviour

On the 3 November, A level Psychology students had the exciting opportunity to visit Twycross Zoo. Every year the department attempts to bring the study of human and animal behaviour to life by getting students to actively participate in research.  Students have the opportunity to plan, conduct and evaluated a structured observation of animal behaviour at the zoo. Many of the girls chose to observe primates including the Orangutans and the Bonobo Chimpanzees. The girls gained a practical insight into conducting observations in the real world of Psychologists and thoroughly enjoyed the experience!
