Department of Psychology

Our department is an interlinked and close community of active researchers who want to make people’s lives better. The impact of their research can be measured locally, regionally, nationally and globally, and touches people’s lives every day.

Many of our staff and students are involved in community or charitable trusts in addition to their academic practice or study, and we have close ties with the British Psychological Society. We are committed to developing our field through our research, practice and educating future psychologists.

When you study psychology with us, you'll be learning from world-leading researchers in fields such as face blindness, neuropsychology and clinical psychology and will have the opportunity to get involved in various research projects. We also have excellent equipment in our testing suite, where you can conduct your own research, as well as act as a subject in other students' research projects.
