We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
The UCL Division of Psychology and Language Sciences is the largest such department in the country with over 100 academic staff and nearly 1500 students studying at undergraduate and postgraduate level. It was formed in 2008 from the merger of the former Departments of Psychology, Human Communication Science, and Phonetics and Linguistics in order to bring together in a single organization UCL’s research and teaching in the psychological and language sciences.
The Division is part of UCL's Faculty of Life Sciences and this in turn (together with the Faculty of Biomedical Sciences) forms the School of Life and Medical Sciences, one of the largest and strongest concentrations of biomedical research in the world. A major element of the Division’s activity is its undergraduate and graduate teaching. We offer undergraduate BSc programmes in Psychology, Linguistics, and Speech Sciences, as well as an Intercalated BSc programme for medical students. As well as being able to conduct graduate research towards a PhD degree, we offer over a dozen Masters degrees in topics as diverse as decision sciences, language sciences, human-computer interaction, and linguistics, plus professional training courses in clinical psychology, educational psychology, psychotherapy, and speech and language therapy.
Academic staff in the Division are affiliated to one of 8 research sections. These are the Research Departments of Clinical, Educational, and Health Psychology; Cognitive, Perceptual and Brain Sciences;Developmental Science; Language & Communication; Linguistics; Speech, Hearing and Phonetic Science; and the Institute of Cognitive Neuroscience and the UCL Interaction Centre. Our research is funded (about £25 million annually) from sources such as the UK Research Councils, charities, and the European Commission.
