Course summary

Overview

Psychology research at UWL spans a vast array of topics investigating the links between our mind, behaviour and our experience of the world - from women’s experiences of termination to the relationship between binge drinking and unplanned sexual behaviour, uses of virtual reality and the more traditional disciplines of cognitive and biopsychology. The School also can support students in a PhD in Addiction Studies.

Our staff have strong research backgrounds and will be happy to supervise you in research covering a broad range of topics in either psychology or addiction studies.

About PhD study

This course is available for you to study either on a full-time or part-time basis and you have the flexibility to switch should you need to.

A PhD is founded on independent research. You will undertake a systematic and in-depth exploration of your chosen topic to produce a substantial body of knowledge and make an original and important contribution to the subject area.

The support provided by your supervisory team will be vital to your student experience and scholarly advancement. You and your supervisors will have regular one-to-one meetings which will provide you with opportunities to develop your research topic and discuss your progress.

Career

Studying for a PhD enables you to develop an area of specialism that will give you an edge whether you are planning to work in industry or to develop expertise to teach in academia. Many of our research graduates go on to take up roles within academia whilst others pursue careers as a clinical psychologist, counselling psychologist or an educational psychologist. You could also work as a consultant within an organisation or open your own business.
