Course summary

We are driven to provide the most stimulating university experience possible for our students, and the quality of the student experience within the School of Psychology is very important to us. A team of psychology students and staff work collaboratively to develop an experience that enables students to develop a passion for psychology, and engage with a range of psychological topics in lectures, tutorials and beyond. This is illustrated by the award winning student Psychology Society (PsySoc) which arranges regular social events and activities, creating an active and vibrant student community. Our excellent teaching and research facilities are located in the centre of the historic Stratford Campus and provide state-of-the-art laboratories and equipment to support the research undertaken by staff and students across the School. Laboratories include: • an infancy lab • a neuro-imaging lab • an eye-tracker lab • a qualitative research methods lab • a recreational drugs and psychophysiology lab • a virtual reality lab We also have a suite of counselling rooms, equipped with DVD video recording facilities, where you can develop counselling skills or conduct interviews for research purposes, and private rooms for your studies and research.
