We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
The Department of Psychology is focused on exploring the science behind the human brain and human behaviour.
Researchers cover a wide range of topics, ranging from the intricacies of neural networks and brain function, to the developmental, biological and social mechanisms that shape who we are, to increasing our understanding of physical and mental health issues, and how we can treat them. Researchers apply a variety of research methods and use a range of specialist research facilities to understand human behaviour, thinking, interaction, and health problems.
The department’s specialist research facilities include a dedicated child development laboratory, eye-tracking technology, TMS and TDCS equipment for experiments involving brain stimulation, a state-of-the-art EEG suite for measuring brain activity, biomimetic robots, motion capture equipment and a virtual reality suite. Students and staff have access to the technologies that they need to enable them to undertake world-class research.
