Student Psychology Society
We have an active Student Psychology Society which organises various events and has a lively social programme.
Active Research Ethos
All students studying psychology for three years have an opportunity to participate in our research programmes during their final year.
We are very active in research, and our work enjoys a national and international reputation. Much of our current research is applied in nature, and includes:
- Studies of cognitive biases and heuristics in human judgement and decision making spatial learning
- Effects of "burn out" in the medical profession
- Reading development
- Eyewitness testimony
- Criminal profiling
- Interviewing techniques and expert evidence in court
- The role of visual attention in word recognition
