Unlocking the secrets of the human mind is one of modern science�s greatest challenges. Psychology, the study of human behaviour, helps us to make sense of how we understand the world, what makes us laugh or cry, why we are conscious, and why we make the choices we do. Applications from students in the following research areas are strongly encouraged: clinical and health psychology; learning and behaviour; cognition and perception; brain and behaviour; evolutionary behavioural science.
Applicants for the PhD programme would normally have, or be studying for a Master�s degree, while our MPhil programme requires a 1st or upper 2nd degree in a discipline related to the proposed research project, or a relevant, approved postgraduate qualification. In some cases, there may be opportunities for MPhil students to continue their studies as a PhD student. English language requirement IELTS 6.5 (with a minimum of 6.5 in each component) or Swansea University recognised equivalent.
