School of Psychology

Welcome from Professor Tim Wildschut

I would like to extend a very warm welcome to all Psychology postgraduate students. I hope that you will find your period of postgraduate study with us intellectually stimulating, fulfilling and enjoyable.

You will find that our postgraduate community is a lively, engaging and friendly group, within which scholarship and intellectual discovery are encouraged. I am certain that you will prosper and be happy within this community and will go on yourself to contribute to the co-operative and supportive ethos that we are proud to say is the hallmark of postgraduate life here in Southampton.

The School of Psychology sits in the Faculty of Environmental and Life Sciences (FELS) and postgraduate research students are part of the FELS Graduate School. Every year the FELS Graduate School puts together a handbook for research students that will guide you through your postgraduate studies and towards your PhD. We have put together this Psychology Handbook, which contains supplementary information to the Faculty Handbook.

I hope this information is helpful. If you have any other queries, please come and see me.


Professor Tim Wildschut
