Study with us

Working together. Achieving results.

The Institute of Psychology, Health and Society is a thriving and nurturing learning community. We are delighted that the number of students applying to study both at postgraduate research and undergraduate level is increasing year-on-year.

We are committed to delivering world-class research to improve the lives of individuals and populations, locally and globally. Our students play an active role in delivering this work. We directly employ postgraduate research students and work closely with the and School of Medicine Old who run affiliated taught programmes.

Academics draw upon their current research projects to deliver a research-led teaching agenda, placing new advancements in health and wellbeing at the heart of the curriculum.

Our postgraduate research completion record is excellent. Over 90% of students submit within a four-year period and those with outstanding results have been offered full-time academic posts within the Institute after completing their Doctorate.

Our governance structure encourages postgraduate research students to contribute to the strategic running of the Institute, where they are active in making key decisions through representation on a number of committees. We also have a designated PGR Committee that oversees the PGR Strategy, with the aim of continually improving the student experience.
