Becoming a TWU member and regularly following the lectures/conferences allowed me to gain knowledge of what is happening with my brain, and understand how I can take control of it in a way. Seeing how much this has helped me so far, I have already recommended it to my friends who have also found it both interesting and healing. Thanks for the great job TWU, especially during the hard times that we have been going through during the last two years. You are doing a great job contributing to people's mental wellbeing. Well done and keep going!

I first attended The Weekend University in Oct 2019 and haven’t stopped since! Mostly what motivated me was that I am studying for a Diploma in Integrative Psychodynamic Counselling. Therefore, TWU is a huge benefit in my learning, including CPD (being an ongoing requirement for me). TWU enables the general public, as well as counsellors such as myself, to access high-quality lectures from prominent psychologists and leading university professors. All the lectures I have attended have been great and provided much inspiration for my work. I highly recommend it to anyone in the counselling field like myself, or if you just have a desire to know more.
Counsellor & Student Monthly Conference Member
I chose The Weekend University as it seemed to include a wide spectrum of subjects relating to the science of the mind, psychology, philosophy, physiology and much more. As a service user within the mental health services it was vital for me to find insight and understanding and The Weekend University has greatly helped in building a firm foundation of relatable information in many aspects of interest on the science of the brain, mind, body, behaviour, consciousness, personal and social community etc. I have found the lectures and other study resources engaging, informative and very helpful in my personal development and recovery and would recommend The Weekend University Membership to those who wish to understand themselves and their environment a little better. I would also recommend it to those wishing to work or already working in this area so as to develop broader skills sets for helping those in need and have found the variety of attendees, students, professionals, the curious and service users alike all very inclusive, accepting and engaged with each other.
Annual Conference Member
As a psychologist and psychotherapist, I am keen to broaden my knowledge of different approaches and techniques and keep up to date with the latest developments in the field. The Weekend University brings together some of the best experts who each time bring valuable insight into a particular theme. I would recommend the TWU membership to practitioners and students of psychology and psychotherapy and anyone who has an interest in these fields.

Psychotherapist and Monthly Conference Member
I have been a permanent member of TWU for almost 2 years. The reason for joining was that I am a practicing psychologist from Bulgaria, but I have lived in England for 12 years and I needed new and different knowledge from very good professionals in the field of psychological science. In addition to the monthly full-day conferences, as a member I get access to lectures from previous TWU events. Thanks for all the opportunities I have as a member of TWU!
Psychologist & Monthly Student Member
My motivation for joining The Weekend University was triggered when I saw that the speakers are at the leading edge of research and discovery in the nature of consciousness. TWU is for the student, the researcher and the clinician of psychology who wants to be informed of the latest ground-breaking discoveries and therapeutic approaches. The organisers are to be congratulated on well-organised events at an incredibly low cost that anyone can attend. Presentations are recorded for those unable to attend in person and I would recommend the TWU membership to all with an interest in psychology in our rapidly changing world.

The invited Speakers are first rate and leaders in their field, providing lectures that are both interesting and accessible. I joined their first presentation back in 2017 and have being attending ever since!
