2013 AS Level Essay Competition

The Department of Psychology has launched this year's essay competition, for students currently in their first year of study for A-Level, Scottish Higher Level or an equivalent qualification.

Essays may answer one of two questions: “Is reason the master of emotions, or are emotions the master of reason?” or “What has research in the past decade taught us about the relationship between children's acquisition of language skills and their conceptual development?”

Three prizes of £300, £200 and £100 will be awarded for the best three essays, the overall winner and his / her subject teacher will be invited to receive the prize at a lunch at Newnham College, Cambridge.

The closing date is the 30th June 2013. Further information about the competition, including how to enter, can be found on this document.
