Psychology (CUPS)


Welcome to the homepage for the Psychology Society (CUPS)

“Sarcastic and witty, but mildly patronising”

We are made up of students from all years. We have meetings once a week, which range from having general discussions about psychology to one-off sessions. For example this year Dr. Lee Hulbert-Williams hosted an Acceptance and Commitment Therapy Workshop which gave us an insight into his area of expertise. We’re not the most party focussed society (shocker), instead of going clubbing every week we usually go to our favourite local, Alexanders, every Tuesday. CUPS house parties are also quite regular for our society, so don’t worry we don’t completely neglect going clubbing. We also regularly raise money for our chosen charity of Papyrus – a charity we are passionate about, and close to our hearts – its focus is on raising awareness and prevention of young suicide. We are a close and friendly group of people, and welcome any new members!

This year we hosted a live acoustic night in the SU, an amazing night with live acts from all around Chester playing, which helped us raise a lot of money for Papyrus! According to the SU president we “raised the bar” for other sports and societies. We hope to host a few more acoustic nights this year to raise money and we also plan on working especially hard to have more unique sessions in our meetings, so are working closely with the psychology department to do this.

We are a close group of friends that are supportive of one another. We know how difficult and daunting uni can be, so we are always there to help and we make sure all of our new members feel welcome. For a lot of people who join, the friendships made in the society become some of their closest.
