Every year the School of Psychology at Deakin University holds a conference for our 4th year students. Students develop a conference poster based on their research project and present it to their fellow students, friends, family, and academic staff. It marks the end of their 4th year candidature and is a great way to end the year. Our on-campus students (Andy Head, Anna Jackson, George Loram, Imogen Russell-Head, Maddy Matthes, Raissa Donadon Berne, and Glenn Chamberlain) all presented at the conference in person.
