The Department of Psychology is focused not simply on teaching psychology but on ensuring our students actually ‘do’ psychology.

We aim to blend a thoroughly rigorous academic approach to the discipline, whilst also ensuring students appreciate the application of psychology to the real world.

The Department of Psychology also emphasises the integral role of high quality research in moving the discipline forward. 


Our departments draw on the expertise of staff with national and international reputations for their research, teaching and professional engagement.


We offer courses at undergraduate, masters and doctoral level.
