Psychology Observation Suite (Burnley Campus)

We believe that the most informative way to learn about this work is for you to encounter the research first hand, by replicating the research in our Psychology Observation Suite.

The Psychology Observation Suite is an observation room with mirrored walls. It is equipped with video and audio recording equipment, with a side room from which to observe, including a fully equipped video editing suite and remote controls for the cameras.

Most UK Psychology degree programmes and indeed some A Level courses teach students about the research of Mary Ainsworth and her “famous” Strange Situation Experiment. For many courses, this will involve descriptions of the work or the watching of pre-recorded footage.

Detailed information


The Psychology Observation Suite is bookable by our Burnley Psychology Students, when it is not being used for teaching purposes.


The Psychology Observation Suite (Burnley Campus) can be found in 117 of the Princess Way, Burnley Campus
