Months of entry
Research in the department covers behavioural neuroscience, perceptual and cognitive sciences, and cognitive neuroscience. These themes are explored using state-of-the-art facilities within the department, including brain imaging (fMRI) and stimulation (TMS), behavioural testing and systems neuroscience.
Students in Experimental Psychology receive unparalleled training in the design, implementation and analysis of psychological experiments. Our research is recognised internationally for sophisticated experimental design and statistical approaches to the analysis of human behaviour, and brain work. Students also benefit from embedded UCL research centres focusing on human brain imaging, brain stimulation, behavioural neuroscience, deafness and multi-modal communication. Our training and research environment allows students to work alongside elite academics and forge unique research agendas.

Fees and funding
Students entering the MPhil/PhD program at Experimental Psychology are supported by a number of sources. A number of departmental demonstratorships/teaching assistantships are available. UCL has been selected as a Doctoral Training Centre by the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) and some students are supported by ESRC funded PhD studentships (UK/EU students only). UCL is also part of similar DTC’s such as those run by the BBSRC and MRC and the department hosts a number of students from each of these programs. Finally, many researchers in the department have established collaborations with outside industry, which help support several PhD studentships. Other sources of funding include the UCL Grand Challenges studentship programme, UCL Graduate Research Scholarships, UCL Overseas Research Scholarships, and the four-year Wellcome Scholarship.
Funding opportunities available for students is provided by the UCL Graduate School.
