School of Psychology & Counselling

The School of Psychology is Europe’s largest provider of university-level education in Psychology, offering undergraduate, taught postgraduate and research qualifications. The school has a vigorous research culture with strengths in psycho-social perspectives, counselling and forensic psychology. Our general orientation is specifically multi-perspectival and interdisciplinary and this is reflected in both our teaching and research - our students are not only versed in methodological skills, but also understand fundamental conceptual and philosophical issues in psychology, and the different ways in which psychological knowledge can be constructed and applied.

Members of the School work in close collaboration with psychologists in other Faculties including the Faculty of Wellbeing, Education and Language Studies (WELS), the Faculty of Business and Law (FBL) and the Faculty of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) in teaching and curriculum provision.

Head of School: Dr Jean McAvoy
