We are a leading centre of research and teaching in theoretical and applied psychology.
In the last Research Excellence Framework (REF 2021), 80% of publications were rated as world leading or internationally excellent, with the proportion of world leading publications increasing from 20% to 42%, placing us 16th in the UK.
All of our students also conduct research. Undergraduates and postgraduates are able to work on staff research via experience schemes, and all carry out their own research. To help develop their research skills, they are also able to attend school-wide and research group seminars to learn about the latest cutting-edge research across all areas of psychology.
