PhD Study

ARE YOU FASCINATED BY PEOPLE AND WHY THEY BEHAVE THE WAY THEY DO?

Psychology is the scientific study of experience and behaviour - why we do what we do, how we interact with other people and the emotional significance we attach to this. These studies have gained increasing importance across a wide range of professional activities, including human resources, education, sport, social care and the creative industries.

We have a growing number of PhD students who are conducting innovative and original research across a variety of topic areas, including message framing in various health contexts, workplace integration, using cognitive restructuring to improve school performance, and many more.
