Freddie Blackburn Shaw (18), pictured second left in the front row, from Brechin was attending the five day programme as part of a BSc in psychology with the University of the Highlands and Islands.

As the university’s psychology degree is delivered online to learners, the annual event brings together students from across the country, including from Inverness, Moray, Perth, Lews Castle, Shetland, Orkney and North Highland Colleges UHI.

The programme, which ran from Monday, March 24, to Friday, March 28, gave attendees the chance to hear from guest speakers and take part in lab sessions and field trips over.

Speaking before the five day programme began, Wendy Maltinsky, psychology programme leader at the university, commented: “Our students invest a great deal in this week and the excitement and activity is remarkable.

“Not only is this an important academic event for them, but it is also valuable for them to connect and re-connect with each other socially.

“The work they produce through the week is of a very high standard and is displayed on the Friday when we have visiting speakers from around the UK to give lectures in forensic, clinical, social, occupational and health psychology.”
