Celebrating 50 years of Psychology at UEL

In 1962, Glenys Turner, began teaching psychology in east London to four students who were studying for a General Degree. A few years later, in the same institution, a Department of Psychology was established, led by John Radford, and a psychology degree pathway developed.  That department is now the University of East London’s School of Psychology, with currently over 2000 students and over 80 academic staff.

Fifty years on from those beginnings, UEL’s Emeritus Professor John Radford, has been awarded the 2012 British Psychological Society Education Board’s Lifetime Achievement Award in recognition of his contribution to the teaching of psychology.

To commemorate fifty years of psychology at UEL and its predecessor institutions and John’s award, on the Friday, 1st of June, 2012 there will be a day of celebration at UEL’s Stratford campus, with 350 guests invited to attend a programme of events.  Other events and activities are planned during 2012. Email us if you would like be involved.
