Welcome to the School of Psychology


The School of Psychology is one of the largest in the University and is also, we believe, one of the very best. In the 2016 QS International rankings, we are ranked 29th in the world, which is the highest ranking for Psychology in New Zealand.

We lead psychological science, scholarship and practice and 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.
