The Department of Psychology & Counselling, Staff and Students conduct studies throughout the year, on topics such as relationships, decision-making, group behaviour, personality, learning and memory, stress, health, alcohol and substance abuse.
We are looking to recruit new participants to join the student participant registry. If you wish to volunteer, and if you are 18 years of age or older, please complete the application form to have your name placed on our participant registry. You may then be contacted by email to advise you of potential research projects you may participate in. Your participation in the registry is completely voluntary. You are free to withdraw your consent to be part of the participant registry at any time.
Some studies involve questionnaires; others are experiments or computer tasks. Most sessions last for less than one hour although some studies may involve follow-up sessions. Some studies may offer you compensation for your time or travel costs. All information collected from registry applications is strictly confidential and will be stored securely.
Only the Registry Administrator will have access to these forms, who will send you research project participation opportunities in the Department of Psychology & Counselling, on the behalf of researchers who have been granted approval to use the Registry. All projects have also been approved by an Ethics Committee. Registry participants will be invited to participate in research projects for a period of up to three years with information deleted after that time.
If you decide to participate in an advertised research project, you can contact the researcher, who will send you an Information Statement with details of the research (i.e., aims, procedures, benefits, potential risks, compensation) and how you take part. Please note, your participation in any research project is completely voluntary.
