Course summary

Our research degree in Psychology (PhD) is for aspiring researchers who want to build on their expertise with high-quality scientific research.

You will be invited to submit a research proposal and will be supported by three supervisors who will support you through your independent research period.

Once accepted onto our programme, you will be registered for the MPhil in the first instance and will be given the option to transfer to PhD following a progress review.
