Take Part

Get paid for volunteering in psychology research!

You can get involved in paid psychology research at RHUL, by volunteering to participate in studies running both on campus and online.

The Psychology department carries out a variety of different projects across four areas of psychology:

·         Health and Well-Being

·         Language, Memory and Attention

·         Perception, Action and Decision Making

·         Social and Affective Processes

Our online studies can be completed from home whenever you have some free time. Our on-campus research makes use of state-of-the-art brain imaging facilities, eye tracking technology, physical sensors and virtual reality software. Either way, becoming a research volunteer is a great way to find out about psychology topics that interest you.

Taking part in a study typically involves completing tasks such as questionnaires, memory games, visual puzzles, making judgements and decisions, or giving thoughtful reflections. Many studies can be completed in under an hour, at a time convenient to you. In return for your time, you can earn a cash payment or be entered into a prize draw.

If you decide to take part in research, your contact details will be stored securely and your identity will not be linked to any research data.
