The Department of Psychology is based at our Cavendish Campus in the heart of London. We offer three undergraduate degrees and a conversion course for graduates with degrees other than Psychology (the Graduate Diploma in Psychology), all of which are accredited by the British Psychological Society for the Graduate Basis for Chartership. At postgraduate level we offer four master’s degrees as well as providing supervision for MPhil and PhD degrees.

In the department, we have a reputation for our teaching and our research, and we believe strongly in maintaining close links between the two. Students are taught by active researchers who are passionate about sharing their enthusiasm for their subject area – six of our staff have won awards for their teaching (three of them prestigious national awards).

The department has a vibrant culture of research, distinctive for its openness, collaboration and interdisciplinarity. We value and promote the inter-relationship of research, enterprise, knowledge transfer and teaching activity. Research in the department is diverse, spanning the full array of the discipline.
