Undergraduate students receive increased exposure to female scientists in the first semester of Year 1 by inviting women to speak about their work as part of the ‘Psychological Research’ module. A full and varied research talk programme (internal and  external speakers) takes place every week and is open to the whole School community. A range of male and female speakers from diverse backgrounds are included in the  programme. Gender inequality in the workplace, stereotyping and the effects of day-care on child development are included in the final year syllabus.
