School of Psychology - Leading psychological science, scholarship and practice


The School of Psychology welcomes secondary school students, teachers and parents to find out more about studying Psychology at The University of Auckland.

Young Scholars Programme

Are you a year 12 student this year and do you want to come to University to study a Stage I Psychology course while you are still at school? If yes, this is the right programme for you.

The Young Scholars Programme offers Psych 108 in the first semester of each year.

Lectures run for twelve weeks and lab sessions for nine weeks. These will be held after school hours. There will be three one hour lectures per week and a two hour laboratory.

You would need to meet the criteria to enter university from year 12 and apply to the University of Auckland under the 'Discretionary entry' category.

For more information please visit the Young Scholars Programme and Discretionary Entrance.

If you are interested in doing this, please contact Michelle Burstall.
