Department of Psychology
I'm in my 2nd year of Psychology here at Warwick. My favourite aspect of the course is its youth. Psychology is still in its infancy within the world of science which means that it's susceptible to question and nothing is set in stone; we are always at the cutting edge of the subject.

Informing Development of Credit Card Related Legislation
Prof Neil Stewart has taken the phenomenon of "cognitive anchoring" and applied it to consumer's attitudes towards debt repayment. Stewart found that including minimum payment information on credit card statements acted as a low cognitive anchor and reduced the size of repayments paid. He found that changing the size of the minimum payment matters too, larger minimum payments are associated with a higher probability of repaying the bill in full.
