The Behaviour Change Challenge @ University of Sheffield

This is a project for AS level groups in South Yorkshire coordinated by the Department of Psychology at the University of Sheffield. Participants are recruited over the internet to this website, where they fill in a questionnaire about their behaviour and take part in some follow-up activities.

The scheme gives A-level students a chance to meet University students and staff, to work in a group on a research-based project and to learn the most important fact about the study of Psychology: measuring and changing human behaviour reliably is very difficult!

Participants in the study can a chance to contribute to the project and research conducted by the University, as well as being entered into a lottery: 3 participants selected at random will share prizes worth £200.


If you have any questions, or if you are part of a school or college which would like to take part in the future, please contact:
