Study in the Department of Psychology

Why psychology

Opportunities for postgraduate students to work with internationally-renowned researchers are offered in several research areas; research students and visiting researchers can study basic psychological processes using the department's excellent laboratory facilities, or they may explore more applied and pragmatic questions in real-world settings.

Departmental activities also include regular research seminars, guest lectures, research workshops, symposia and hosting international conferences, as well as short courses. Thus we provide a broad, stimulating and supportive environment for both learning and research.
