Dr Cora Sargeant is a Senior Teaching Fellow within Psychology at the University of Southampton.

I coordinate the research on the DEdPsych course and alongside Dr Sarah Wright run the EP Gender Research Group, where we conduct research around gender diversity.

I am an HCPC registered Educational Psychologist and until recently I worked as an EP in Wiltshire Educational Psychology Service. More recently I have begun working wholly at the University of Southampton as research coordinator on the DEdPsych course, and coordinator of the 3057 Introduction to Educational Psychology undergraduate module.

Research interests

I am particularly interested in research focussing on gender diversity. Recently we have conducted work considering the factors that influence the attitudes of young people towards gender diverse communities, considered the factors that might support post-traumatic growth in LGBT+ young people living openly and honestly in school, and begun to develop a new model of gender by young people for young people representing the full spectrum of gendered possibilities they experience.

Research group

Centre for Innovation in Mental Health (CiMH)

I am the research coordinator on the DEdPsych programme, and as such supervise our year 1 trainees through their Small Scale Research Projects and coordinate the supervision of our trainees’ thesis projects overall.

Module Coordinator – PSYC3057 Introduction to Educational Psychology

Module Coordinator – PSYC6127 Evidence Based Practice

Module Coordinator – PSYC8042 Small Scale Research Project


I primarily supervise trainees engaged in doctoral research on the DEdPsych programme.
