School of Psychology

In a dark room, a man attaches electrodes to an EEG cap worn by a seated student. The cap is attached to a computer behind the pair, which displays brain activity data.

We play a major role both regionally and globally. In the UK we are involved in training educational, clinical and counselling psychologists, while around the world our research is having a direct impact, attracting millions of pounds of funding and facilitating a stimulating research environment that inspires our students.

World-class research feeds into everything we do. Our BPS-accredited undergraduate degrees and postgraduate courses, including cognitive behavioural therapy training, span the key areas of contemporary psychology such as cognition, social, clinical, neuroscience, health and developmental. In the 2021 Research Excellence Framework (REF), our research rated as world leading (100%) for its societal impact. Our research environment is rated as world leading and internationally excellent.
