Study applied psychology in an intellectually stimulating and supportive environment. You'll learn from faculty in Social and Applied Psychology - one of the largest groups of social and applied social psychologists in the country, and one of the UK’s leading research groups.

We have expertise in the areas of:

  • psychological interventions.

You’ll develop the skills to undertake postgraduate research in psychology, or to embark on policy-related work or a wide variety of careers involving research.
