Psychology Trip to Chester Zoo

On 30th November, Psychology took 145 of their students to Chester Zoo to study animal behaviour. The trip enabled students to get some experience of planning and carrying out a naturalistic observation, which is part of the research methods component of the course. During the visit, students and teachers enjoyed a boat trip with students in the islands zone, where they got to see two tigers and some orangutans sat in the sun.

Feedback from students was really positive, with many commenting on the usefulness of seeing the various animals, some that they had never seen before, in a good environment for observation. Lots of students enjoyed being able to socialise and make friends with students that they didn't know and taking the time to get to know people better.
