Psychology

A member of staff, expert in the chosen field, is directly responsible for guiding and supporting your research programme. As a research student you'll become part of our thriving academic community. A PhD, by definition, is an original contribution to knowledge. A research degree is different from a taught course. Research students are expected to self-direct their learning with support from a supervisory team. The teaching and learning style at PhD level takes the form of 1:1 supervision, e-learning and workshops. In the most recent Research Excellence Framework Psychology was rated: * 60% of our research was awarded 3* out of 4* - 'very considerable impacts in terms of their reach and significance' and * 85% of submitted publications to be internationally recognised, internationally excellent or world leading. Our research has made a difference at many levels: influencing policy and creating new commercial capabilities. Our scientists work in multidisciplinary teams to target major societal challenges in the areas of human health, well-being, performance and behaviour. We apply theory in theses areas to contemporary real world issues by undertaking innovative and rigorous science.
