DreamLab Programme

Not quite sure what to do after you complete your studies at QMUL? The DreamLab Programme will help you explore, identify and pursue a personal dream for your future.

What is DreamLab?Passion led us here graffiti

The DreamLab Programme is a group-based psychological-educational course that has specifically been designed to help young people develop concrete and positive plans for their future. The programme has been developed by a group of psychologists led by Professor Michael Pluess from QMUL. The programme helps young people to identify and develop a personal ‘good dream’ based on their individual passionsskills and the needs they perceive around them, before identifying and actively pursuing specific steps to realise that dream.

The programme builds on established psychological concepts and empirical research. It will be a mix of teaching, exercises and guided small group activities. Topics that will be covered include: Why are dreams important? What is a ‘good dream’? How do I identify my own dream? How do I pursue my dream?
