Course content

Students undertaking a PhD in Psychology at Anglia Ruskin become part of a newly established and rapidly expanding centre of research excellence. We have world-leading staff members in each of the core areas of Psychology, with particular strengths in cognitive neuroscience, cognition and emotion, social psychology and health psychology. We work within two main research groups: Applied, Social and Health Psychology; and Brain and Cognition. Within these groups, there are a number of research areas.

MSc-level training in quantitative and qualitative methods is available to upgrade students’ existing research skills and additional specialist training in software and equipment will allow students to develop new research abilities. Training is also available in research writing and presentation skills and all our students are expected to publish their results in high-impact peer-reviewed journals and are supported to present their work at leading international conferences in their subject areas.
