In the most recent Research Assessment Exercise (2008), the Department was ranked 5th in the UK for the excellence of its research. In 2006, research groups in the Department won the Queen’s Anniversary Prize for Higher Education.

The department was established in the difficult period of the Second World War, but Psychology at Birkbeck has its roots in the beginnings of the scientific study of the subject in the UK over a century ago.
