The School of Psychology

Forward-thinking people

The School of Psychology is a place where world leading academics teach vibrant programmes to Undergraduate and Postgraduate students.

Study with us and you can access a vast array of Psychology specialisms, from cognitive neuroscience, developmental psychology and abnormal psychology to applied psychology disciplines such as forensic and investigative.

Our close links with the University's research institutes, including the Institute of Psychology, Health and Society, as well as the global academic and professional communities, mean you can be confident you're getting the latest research-led teaching.

And because in our teaching we aim to apply psychological concepts to real world issues, such as obesity, drug dependency and policing, you can be confident you'll be in demand from quality employers.

We're the only Russell Group University to offer an accredited Masters in Investigative and Forensic Psychology and there's also a Masters programme in Research Methods.

A vibrant community

You'd join around 700 full-time equivalent undergraduates, 50 postgraduates and 40 staff at the school. Our tutors are active researchers, offering you the opportunity to study under true experts in a variety of fields.

The Student Experience Office

With our strong emphasis on the practical, we've invested heavily in facilities, including well-equipped laboratories, an innovative bar lab (to study addictive behaviours) and a body fat scanner (supporting our obesity studies).

We're also part of a far wider Health and Life Sciences community at the University of Liverpool, giving us access to extensive resources and expertise.
