Working together makes our research stronger

Over the last couple of years, we have created a vibrant research environment that not only consolidates and reinforces existing areas of research strength in the School, but it also actively encourages staff to explore and develop new research vistas, particularly cross-disciplinary (e.g. with engineering, health and other social sciences). We have a strong track record in carrying out impactful research, which makes a difference to people’s lives at home and abroad. We have national and international collaborations with key researchers in complementary areas of psychology. The relationships that we are building are helping us to become a world-leading centre in our distinct areas of psychological research.

A diverse educational offering

We pride ourselves in the quality of our teaching that is widely recognised as excellent. We are proactive in terms of our educational provision, responding to the current economic climate through the development of an attractive, modern, educational experience.

Our Masters courses are directly linked to our research strengths and often act as a feeder to our PhD programme. Our Doctoral training programmes in Clinical and in Educational Psychology offer exceptional training for individuals wishing to apply Psychology through the profession.

We are forward thinking and creative in how we use technology to enhance the educational experience and are always looking for new ways to improve our students’ opportunities.

We are growing

Significant investment from the University has enabled us to expand and we are currently advertising posts to develop the strengths of the School. 

If you are interested, we would encourage you to read on and find out more about our history, ambition, research, education, as well as student and staff experience within the School. If you have any questions relating to our open academic positions or the School in general, please get in touch.

We look forward to welcoming you to our School.
