Liz Humm, who graduated from the School of Psychological Science this Summer, has won the British Psychological Society's Cognitive Project prize.

Liz Humm, a recent undergraduate student, has won the British Psychological Society's Cognitive Undergraduate Project prize. The prize recognises outstanding research conducted by undergraduates in the area of Cognitive Psychology. 

The BPS commented that there was 'a set of strong nominations and stiff competition' and the fact that Liz's project 'came out on top really serves to underscore the high quality of her work'. 

Liz's project is titled 'Retrieval Practice: A Failure to Promote the Retention and Meaningful Learning of Conceptual, Theory-Based Material'. 

Liz has the opportunity to present her work as a poster at the BPS Joint Cognitive & Developmental Sections conference at the Best Western Plus, Stoke-on-Trent in September. 

As a school we are delighted about this great achievement for Liz.
