Partnership with Middlesex University

Middlesex University London logo

HGS U3A has entered a reciprocal partnership agreement with Middlesex University. The U3A’s liaison with the university is being coordinated by Emeritus Professor Lisa Woolfson, a member of HGS U3A. The first stage of our joint cooperation involves a series of lectures on psychology under the leadership of Professor Toni Bifulco, Head of Middlesex University’s Department of Psychology. Future plans might include HGS U3A members working on research projects and mentoring students.

Psychology Programme

All sessions will be held in HG02 in the Hatchcroft Building on Middlesex University’s Hendon Campus on Mondays at 4.00 – 5.30 pm. The Hatchcroft Building is next to the Fire Station on The Burroughs. The 183 bus from Golders Green stops a short walk away opposite Hendon Town Hall. Map (PDF file).
