I hope you find them as useful as I do!

details of events that may be taking place near you,

I love their 'A to Z of psychology' page, which features a ‘Term of the day’. They also include information on upcoming events, career advice, and latest industry news.
Be sure to check out 'Research Digest' which is published by the BPS. They provide a new psychology study every weekday.
