Category Spotlight: Psychology

The Psychology category has existed since the founding of The Undergraduate Awards in 2012.

This category is for students of Psychology, including Forensic Psychology, Health Psychology, Neuroscience, etc.

Entrants must submit an abstract of between 100-300 words long and the word count must be between 2,500 and 5,000 words.

In 2017, the category was won by Jordan Skrynka from the University of Dundee with her paper, "Hungry and Impulsive: Does blood glucose predict impulsivity for future rewards in a fasted state?".

The judges were extremely impressed with Jordan's essay, stating that her assignment:

"Tackles an issue of recent theoretical importance with a nice design and sophisticated analysis. Certainly seems worthy of publishing in a top journal in the field."

In 2016 the category was won by Tan Jun Liang Jonathan from Nanyang Technological University with their essay, "Effects of Sleep on Health-Related Quality of Life in Patients With Coronary Heart Disease" which gives a interesting examination on the factor structure of the PSQI in Coronary Heart Disease patients.

If you are an undergraduate Psychology student we would highly encourage you to submit your best assignments to The Undergraduate Awards before June 12th, which you can do by clicking the link here.
