Department of Psychology

Welcome to the Department of Psychology. 

We are a dynamic department whose aim is to integrate cutting-edge research into quality teaching, professional practice, and public engagements. We are active researchers who work closely with stakeholders, e.g., charitable trusts, the NHS and policy makers who contribute to our research, teaching, and more than 70 placement opportunities.

Our research impact extends locally, regionally, nationally and internationally. Our close ties with the British Psychological Society enable our commitment to educating future psychologists to be upheld. Our students will learn about different areas of psychology, all of which are embedded in 1 research centre and 5 research groups led by experts in the fields. Our testing suite is equipped with state-of-the-art facilities which aim to engage learning and research among students. We provide a multitude of placement opportunities on the course, examples include Ella's story about her placement at Tottenham Hotspur Foundation; Charlotte was awarded the Overall Placement Prize Winner for the Faculty of Science and Technology 2018. Read her placement story.
