Psychology

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. The following research areas are strongly encouraged: clinical and health psychology; learning and behaviour; cognition and perception; brain and behaviour; evolutionary behavioural science.

Assessment methods

A thesis of no more than 100,000 words is submitted, which demonstrates original research that contributes significantly to the subject area. This is then followed by an oral examination of the thesis (viva).
