She also briefly mentions her training in Economics, which is not provided in the Behavioural and Data Science MSc, which has training in computer science instead.

Seminars

The MSc Behavioural and Data Science students join the academics and researchers in a University-wide weekly DR@W seminar series. The format is one with lots of space for discussion, and MSc students are right at the heart of this! We have visiting speakers from around the world and research-in-progress talks from departments from across the University, including Psychology, Mathematics, Statistics, Economics, and the Business School.

The Psychology Department and Computer Science Department both have ongoing lecture series from international scholars in these areas.


Societies

The Psychology Society has events throughout the year, culminating in a visit by students and academics to Cumberland Lodge, in Windsor Great Park, and a weekend of seminars and talks by students and researchers.

Cumberland lodge

The student branch of the Behavioural Science GRP, which MSc Behavioural and Data Science students join, organises visiting speakers from behavioural science labs around the world and networking events. Most recently this group has organized a seminar on the neuroeconomics of financial bubbles from Prof. Colin Camerer, and a networking event with Warwick, LSE, and UCL students and over 20 companies at the Shard, London.
