Procrastination is a common problem that is seemingly harmless – or is it? A growing evidence base suggests that putting off important tasks, like writing that term paper or going to the gym, may have some very unhealthy consequences. Join Dr Fuschia Sirois (Reader in Social Psychology) for this fascinating masterclass, as she critically reviews the scientific evidence on the potential health consequences of procrastination and the various research methods that have been used to suggest a link between procrastination and health-related outcomes. There will be plenty of opportunities to chat to Fuschia, and get lots of your questions answered.
There will also be a chance for you to find out more about being a psychology student at The University of Sheffield, and where a degree in psychology can take you. You will hear from some of our current students, our expert careers guide, and a member of our admissions team, who will all be on hand to answer any questions you might have about studying psychology at university.
Please note: This is a repeat session of the one that ran in March 2021.
