School of Psychology - Leading psychological science, scholarship and practice
Welcome to the School of Psychology
The School of Psychology is one of the largest in the University and, we believe, among the most diverse and exciting. From the 2012/2013 QS International rankings, we are the top-ranked department in the university. Most of our academic staff have impressive international research reputations, and several are recognised among the world leaders in their fields. Our teaching is very highly regarded, and we have several winners of Distinguished Teaching Awards on our staff. We see a strong link between research and teaching as the unique advantage that studying at a major international university offers.
