Course summary

Overview

The Institute of Psychology, Health and Society conducts internationally acclaimed research into many aspects of psychology and human behaviour, including perception, language development, pain, addiction, appetite, and offending behaviour.

The multi-disciplinary research environment with strong NHS and NIHR partnerships means we are an inspiring environment for postgraduate students.

We have expertise and ongoing research using both quantitative and qualitative methods, systematic reviews and clinical trials in a variety of community, primary and secondary care contexts. Examples of our current work include the management of musculoskeletal problems in primary and intermediate care, the use of urgent dental care services, orthoptic and vision services and palliative care.

We have highly active, internationally renowned research groups and, in the most recent Research Excellence Framework (2014), 95% of our research activity was rated as of international standard. Our work is theoretically robust and problem and policy focused, with a research agenda that's socially relevant and postgraduate teaching that's truly research-led.

Targeting our key areas of interest we've systematically enhanced our research base, culture and infrastructure, whilst building internationally influential groups. We hold the Athena Swan Silver award. We have a strong track record in attracting fellowship funding and are closely linked to the NIHR Research Design Service that helps applicants build more competitive grant bids. We have strong links with the NHS, Social Care and Public Health as well as robust systems of, and support for, public engagement in our research.
